UPDATE – 16 December 2022
The amendments to the Animal Products Notice: Production, Supply and Processing relating to chicken producers come into force on 16 December 2022. The Notice Chapters have been restructured to bring the original Chapter JB, and the consulted Chapter JA forward in the Notice. These are now Chapters FA and FB, and fit before poultry processing in Chapter G. These new requirements in Chapter FA apply to chicken producers operating under a registered Risk Management Programme (RMP).
The interim requirements in Chapter FB will maintain the Salmonella Enteritidis controls and oversight from the Emergency Control Scheme until 31 October 2023, when all chicken producers are required to operate under an RMP.
Public consultation on the proposed requirements for chicken producers closed on 10 November 2022.
