AWH offers the electronic identification capability of greasy wool from all major Australian Ports. The digitalization of the physical bale handling process has the potential to create significant advantages for the wool industry by allowing more detailed information to be passed electronically through the pipeline, reducing the need for manual entry whilst delivering operation efficiencies. Further opportunities for the electronic identification technology include traceability back to origin of the physical wool, the capability to electronically locate and identify wool within a warehouse and the ability for a mill to electronically mark blend codes (or other data) on greasy wool prior to scouring.

The NWD is backed by a comprehensive integrity program including desktop audits and onfarm inspections for mulesing status with a single purpose: to build wool pipeline and consumer confidence in Australian wool. Through its extensive database, the NWD-IP also provides Mulesing Status Certificates to the buyers and users of Australian wool. The NWD-IP is certified to ISO9001:2015, and operated by AWEX, an independent, not-for-profit wool integrity systems company.
