Alpaca Classers

To be registered with AWEX a wool classer must have completed and passed a recognised training course in woolclassing/wool preparation (Certificate III or IV).  If they have also completed the alpaca modules, they are alpaca stencilled classers.

By registering with AWEX, an alpaca stencilled classer is agreeing to abide by the Rules of Registration.  Bales bearing a registered classer’s stencil are declared by the classer to be prepared to the Standard declared in the Code of Practice.

The Code of Practice is one component of the AWEX System. Classers that prepare lines that significantly fail one or more of the criteria will be subject to corrective action processes.

Registered classers that prepare lines at or above the COP standard will apply a registered classerID (stencil) to the bales.
