IKB Kip inspections
Covid-19 is affecting our daily lives. It is therefore important that we follow local government advice and take account of your health and safety as a participant, as well as that of other visitors to your farm. This is why we informed you by letter about a number of changes to IKB’s working methods. Since 2 April, most IKB inspections have been carried out remotely, e.g. the annual re-inspection.
In several countries, the policy regarding covid-19 is gradually being relaxed, and there is an increasing demand from the field for physical inspections instead of remote ones. That is why, depending on the situation in your country of residence, agreements are being made about carrying out physical inspections or remote checks. These agreements are made in consultation with your Certifying Authority (CA).
A visit to your farm
As an IKB participant, you engage external parties for various activities.
You can help your visitors follow the current local measures. Also consider the following points:
- Inform your visitors well in advance if you have a cold or a raised temperature.
- Provide sufficient space in the changing room and break room.
- Arrange for your on-farm employees and the visitors to work separately as much as possible.
As always, make sure visitors have all they need to wash and disinfect their hands. Also provide a space to spray and clean any materials and vehicles.
