You will need this accreditation if you intend to operate as a commercial pet food producer. A pet food producer can slaughter animals or birds, or process carcasses for the making of pet food.
Accredited pet food producers will need to comply with the Pet Food Safety Scheme as prescribed by regulation. The Scheme requires accredited producers to:
- comply with relevant standards
- hold an accreditation in order to carry on a business involving the supply, production or processing of pet food
- prepare and implement an approved food safety program which is audited at least once a year.
