ISO Animal Welfare Standards

The farmers we work with prioritize the care and welfare of their animals. However what that looks like on-farm, from country to country can vary greatly. For that reason the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, has been working to create a technical specification that can be implemented locally yet recognized globally.

As an ISO 9001 company with experience in standards development, Praedium has taken an active role in participating in the ISO Technical Committee that has been responsible for the development and review of these international animal welfare management requirements.  Relying heavily on the World Organisation for Health’s Terrestrial Animal Health Code (OIE TAHC), the proposed ISO requirements are being developed through the collaboration of the agricultural industries, animal welfare organizations, consultants, and auditing bodies of nations around the globe.
