You must comply with this standard if you are an egg producer that intends to sell your eggs as free range. The standard outlines requirements for labelling and displaying of hen eggs that are represented as free range.
Under the standard, egg producers may only use the word 'free range' where the eggs were laid by hens that:
- had meaningful and regular access to an outdoor range during daylight hours of the laying cycle
- were able to roam and forage on the outdoor range
- were subject to a stocking density of 10 000 hens or less per hectare.
