This Standard is based on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles and is an update of Australian Standard for the Construction of Premises and Hygienic Production of Poultry Meat for Human Consumption 2nd Edition AS 4465:2001. It applies to the minimum construction requirements for premises and equipment where poultry are slaughtered for human consumption.

It aims to facilitate the production of wholesome poultry meat by:

  • preventing product contact with contaminating materials
  • enabling effective cleaning programs to operate
  • controlling ingress of contaminating materials and vermin
  • providing adequate means of protecting product wholesomeness.

Part B of the standard covers the hygienic production for human consumption of products derived from poultry but does not apply to retailing poultry meat or poultry products.

Standards covering meat for human consumption now come under the control of FRSC (Food Regulation Standing Committee) previously covered by PISC (Primary Industries Standing Committee).

 

 
  • Based on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles
  • Consistent with the AS/NZS ISO 9000 (2000) series
  • Written in substantial compliance and consistency with Codex Alimentarius Volume 10

 All those involved in the construction and operation of premises used for slaughtering and processing of poultry. 

 The Food Regulation Standing Committee (FRSC) advises the Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Ministerial Council (ANZFRMC) on meat standards issues. The FRSC is in turn advised by the Meat Standards Committee (MSC) through the Primary Production and Processing Working Group (PPPWG).

Until Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) include a meat production and processing standard in the Food Standards Code, the MSC will continue to make recommendations on the maintenance of the current standards.
