United Kingdom - Step forward for online pig movement

Pig producers and abattoirs are saving time and money with the new BPEX electronic pig movement project, known in short as eAML2. The system is currently being trialled in all assured abattoirs and will go live across the industry in April 2011 for England and Wales. It has combined the Animal Movement Licence (AML2) and Food Chain Information (FCI) forms – required when pigs are moved from farm to slaughter – and made the whole process electronic.

Pig producers and abattoirs are saving time and money with the new BPEX electronic pig movement project, known in short as eAML2.

The system is currently being trialled in all assured abattoirs and will go live across the industry in April 2011 for England and Wales. It has combined the Animal Movement Licence (AML2) and Food Chain Information (FCI) forms – required when pigs are moved from farm to slaughter – and made the whole process electronic.

Dorothea Schiemann of BPEX said: “The producer fills in details of his consignment online before sending them for slaughter and the abattoir is emailed the information automatically early in the morning before the pigs arrive.

“As before, the abattoir confirms the number of pigs received, any pigs dead on arrival (DOAs) and the consignment’s unloading time. Only now the information will be submitted online, which is quicker than handling the paper forms.

“The information is automatically uploaded to the central government database and a copy is sent to the Local Authority, so there is no longer a need for abattoirs to post AML2 forms.
“Producers are also finding it saves them time during Trading Standards audits. What might normally take an hour now only takes 15 minutes: movement licences can all be seen at once on the producer’s computer screen so there is no need to faff about with paper licences.”
