This is the first edition of the FSIS Compliance Guide for a Systematic Approach to the Humane Handling of Livestock.

Monday 4 November 2013 (4 years 6 months 23 days ago)

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is announcing the availability of a compliance guide to assist livestock slaughter establishments in complying with the regulatory requirements for humane handling and slaughter of livestock, "FSIS Compliance Guide for a Systematic Approach to the Humane Handling of Livestock". FSIS encourages operators of livestock slaughter establishments to follow this guidance.

This is the first edition of the FSIS Compliance Guide for a Systematic Approach to the Humane Handling of Livestock. FSIS developed this guide to promote a systematic approach to achieve compliance with the 9 CFR Part 313 regulatory requirements for humane handling and slaughter of livestock. The guide also provides a sample humane handling plan and an assessment tool. FSIS is committed to providing establishments the best assistance possible.

FSIS believes that a well-implemented systematic approach for humane handling is the best way to achieve the best practices for humane handling and slaughter of livestock.

This guide describes a systematic approach that FSIS believes represents the current best practices.

This guide does not include all items that could be included in an establishment's development and implementation of a systematic approach to humane handling and should not serve to limit the design of a systematic approach. The guide is simply a starting point for those establishments needing guidance and assistance in establishing a systematic approach.
