Proposed Animal Products Notice: Production, Supply and Processing

About this consultation

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) proposes to amend the Animal Products Notice: Production, Supply and Processing.

This Notice is being amended to include long-term requirements for chicken producers to operate under a registered Risk Management Programme (RMP). The amendments have been proposed to transition from the interim requirements, which came into effect on 6 October 2022, following the expiry of the Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) Emergency Control Scheme (ECS), to long-term requirements for a Risk Management Programme (RMP). Under the Animal Products Amendment Regulations 2022, chicken producers must begin operating under a registered RMP no later than 1 November 2023.

These requirements result from the Animal Products Amendment Regulations 2022
