Understand your national regulations

These may include specific regulations, approved codes of practice

(ACOPs), industry standards, local authority by laws, duties of care, etc.

Each country has its own health and safety regulations and how they

apply to pig farmers can depend on a number of variables. It is therefore not

appropriate here to cite specific regulations and ACOPs etc. However, Fig.17-3

lists the topics that may be applicable to your pig farm and that are likely to

be covered by regulations in most countries. The list is by no means complete

and you should use it as a guide to compile your own comprehensive register.

For your management system to be effective you must be aware of the regulations

etc., know how they apply to you and what you must do to comply with them. You

may need outside help with this.
