ACWEP represents the interests of wool buying firms which traditionally have serviced most of their wool supplies from the auction selling system; and Australian early stage wool processing companies.

Today, most Australian wool is exported in the greasy form, or as scoured or carbonised wool.

ACWEP is recognised by Government and other industry sectors as being the national representative voice for auction buying interests and early stage processors; and represents its members on various industry committees and at meetings with other industry sectors.

ACWEP was formed in 2006 by the merger of the Australian Council of Wool Exporters (ACWE) and the Australian Wool Processors’ Council (AWPC).


Prior to the:

State and regional based associations of auction buyers date back to the 1890s, with the first national representative body established in 1946. The national body took the name of Australian Council of Wool Exporters in 1986.

The Australian Wool Processors’ Council was formed by the merger of the former Federation of Australian Wool Scourers & Carbonisers and the Wool Textile Manufacturers’ of Australia in  1988.
