Standards

Where cold crush oilseed processing takes place on a site where livestock are kept, there must be a regular herd health monitoring system* carried out by a veterinary practitioner at intervals advised by the practitioner, with special attention to salmonella and to any easily transmissible diseases related to both human and animal health. Records of this monitoring must be kept. *Note: Members of farm assurance schemes covering livestock production can use existing documentation such as Herd Health Plans or Flock Health Plans as part of evidence of a regular herd health monitoring system
