The provisions of this Code emphasise the responsibilities of the poultry producer, agent, catching crew and transport personnel. They are intended to encourage considerate treatment of birds so that transport stress and injury are minimised. The general objective is to minimise any adverse effects on birds by ensuring they are transported to their destination as safely as possible.

For this Code, transport includes the delivery of chicks to farms from the hatchery, and the period from removal of the birds from their living area to other accommodation or to slaughter. Apart from the need to consider the well-being of poultry during the transport process, everyone involved must also be mindful of the road transport regulations that apply in all of the States and Territories.

The Code is intended as a set of guidelines that provides detailed minimum standards for assisting people in understanding the standard of care required to meet their obligations under the laws that operate in Australia's States and Territories.

 

 
  • Expanded sections on catching conditions, transfer of ownership, handling recommendations and keeping adequate records
