INTERIM REQUIREMENTS FOR MANAGING SALMONELLA ENTERITIDIS FROM 6 OCTOBER 2022
The Animal Products Order: Emergency Control Scheme – Managing Salmonella Enteritidis in Commercial Chicken Flocks expired on 5 October 2022. After this, we’re using a regulatory framework to manage long-term risks to public health and international trade from Salmonella Enteritidis (SE).
Under the amended Animal Products Regulations 2021, people involved in the commercial chicken supply chain must have a registered Risk Management Programme no later than 1 November 2023. Before this occurs, interim requirements have been established in the Animal Product Notice: Production, Supply and Processing.

On 29 June 2022, Cabinet agreed that risk management programmes (RMPs) and monitoring and surveillance programmes will be the regulatory framework. Industry was consulted on proposed options for a long-term regulatory framework from 29 April to 15 May 2022.
The guidance on this web page will help people involved in the commercial chicken supply chain to comply with the good operating practice, testing and verification requirements of the Animal Product Notice: Production, Supply and Processing (the Notice) in Part JB1 [PDF, 2.5 MB]
The rules apply to all those in the commercial chicken supply chain, including:
- breeders, hatcheries, and rearers
- egg producers and broiler meat farms.
