APIQ Standards Revision Taking Effect April 2017

Each Year the APIQtick13x14® Standards and Performance Indicators are reviewed by stakeholders, including producers of all sizes and types of production, with opportunities for improvement identified and changes drafted for industry review.  Once the review process is completed and improvements approved by the APL Board, they are presented to industry Delegates before being released to industry.  Revised and Approved Standards (Version 4.2 1/2017) will be taking effect on 1 April 2017 as a result of the 2016 review.

APIQ Third Party Auditing

A proposal was put to industry delegates in November 2016 to move 100 per cent to independent auditing of piggeries by an independent Third Party.This is seen by many stakeholders as a significant but necessary improvement to the program that increases credibility and increases the value of APIQü® to the industry.

APIQ Uptake is currently at 90.1%

Our target to maintain is 90%.
