Evaluating changes to official controls in pig approved slaughterhouses


The FSA is funding new research in pig approved slaughterhouses to understand how the legislative changes that apply from 1 June 2014 are rolling out and operating in practice.
The results of the research will help in the understanding of how the changes are working in practice.
The work will be carried out by the independent research agency Ipsos MORI on behalf of FSA, and fieldwork will take place in spring/summer 2014 and 2015.
"It is important to emphasise that this fieldwork is for research purposes only and visits to establishments are not intended to be an official inspection or assessment of the slaughterhouse," the agency said.
Ipsos MORI will be contacting operators of a range of approved pig slaughterhouses at some stage this month (May), seeking the participation of their management and staff. FSA officials (and Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in Northern Ireland) carrying out official controls in pig slaughterhouses will also be invited to participate.
Participation of food business operators, managers, staff and officials will be entirely voluntary but we strongly encourage you to take part if invited, so that your views are represented.
