New rules for Chicken Producers from 16 December 2022
The Animal Products Order: Emergency Control Scheme – Managing Salmonella Enteritidis in Commercial Chicken Flocks expired on 5 October 2022. We're now using a regulatory framework to manage long-term risks to public health and international trade from Salmonella Enteritidis (SE).
To manage the risk of Salmonella Enteritidis (SE), under the Animal Products Regulations 2021, chicken producers involved in the commercial chicken supply chain must have a registered risk management programme (RMP) no later than 1 November 2023. Before this occurs, interim requirements have been established that continue the SE controls from 6 October 2022 until 31 October 2023. These include you being a listed chicken producer with MPI.
