New micro abattoir RMP released

The Risk Management Programme (RMP) Template for Micro Abattoirs and accompanying guidance document have now been published.

MPI sought feedback on the draft Risk Management Programme (RMP) Template for Micro Abattoir.

The RMP Template for Micro Abattoir was developed to provide operators a simple way of meeting applicable regulatory requirements under the Animal Products Act 1999. The RMP template was developed by MPI together with an industry group.

A micro abattoir is a business involved in the slaughter and dressing of farmed animals for human consumption for domestic use. These businesses will have a low throughput and limited scope of operations (for example, farmed mammals, ostriches, and emus).
