All piggeries seeking or maintaining APIQ_® Certification must have a successful annual compliance audit conducted by an independent Third Party Audit Organisation.
These audits will be conducted by AUS-MEAT Ltd who is the TPA organisation contracted by APL to conduct all audits for the industry.
APIQ_® Compliance Audit fees and charges have been set in a Service Agreement agreed to by the APL Board and AUS-Meat Ltd.
AUS-MEAT Ltd will invoice the producer directly for their audit services. It is the producer’s responsibility to pay AUS-MEAT Ltd on receipt of an invoice for audit services.
