In 2013, an Industry Audit Task Force was formed of producers, veterinarians, animal scientists, retail food service personnel and packer representatives. Their goal was to develop a consensus on consistent on-farm auditing standards using Pork Quality Assurance® Plus and Transport Quality Assurance® programs as a foundation.
The result is the Common Swine Industry Audit, which was announced at the 2014 World Pork Expo. This audit is a third party audit and farms continue to need PQA Plus, PQA Plus Site Assessment and TQA.
