Provincial pork associations in western Canada are preparing to move to the next phase of the Canadian Truck Wash Facility Registration Pilot Project. Provincial pork associations in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta have completed the Canadian Truck Wash Facility Registration Pilot Project and plan to continue the effort with truck wash facilities that have not yet participated. The voluntary effort included the development of wash facility and wash process checklists designed to identify strengths and weaknesses to help improve biosecurity.

According to Harvey Wagner, the manager of producer services with Sask Pork, "when we do this checklist we look at how the building is set up, who's there, the staff, the training, what they're doing, what they can do, what their disinfectants are, the way the building is situated, how the trucks come in, potential sources of cross contamination."
