Prevention is important to avoid spreading pathogens and other infections. To exclude Avian Influenza (AI) or an infection caused by pathogens such as Salmonella, ILT and Coryza, good hygiene standards are becoming increasingly important. Controlling animal diseases entails, among other things, high costs. Therefore, amended hygiene regulations have been applied in the IKB Kip scheme since 1 June 2019.

An important step in hygiene measures as a whole within the IKB provisions is the obligation to provide one or more shower(s) as part of the hygiene lock. After all, human-animal contact is one of the greatest risks related to introducing and spreading pathogens. Installing and using showers applies to all IKB Kip certified poultry establishments: rearing of grandparent and parent breeding and broiler establishments (from July 2019).

Visitors’ register

To monitor who visits your farm, it is important that visitors sign the visitors’ register. A visitor is someone other than the farmer and his staff entering the premises. Provision J13 in Annex 1.2 (Regulations for poultry farms) describes the elements with which the visitors’ register must comply. Provision J14 in Annex 1.2 (Regulations for poultry farms) states that the farmer should have a hygiene protocol which is visible to visitors. Visitors must declare, via the visitors’ register, that they have read and taken note of the hygiene protocol. The protocol describes aspects including what visitors should do on entering the farm premises.
