Consultation Launched on Future of Pig Industry Professional Register

05 February 2016

British Pig Executive

UK - A major consultation is being launched on the future of the Pig Industry Professional Register (PIPR).

It was set up in 2007 and since then there has been a steady growth in membership but it was decided to take a step back and examine the whole of PIPR closely.

This aimed to look at the functionality and day-to-day running of PIPR together with the value it actually offers members.

The review is being organised by Sam Bowsher, AHDB skills development co-ordinator, who said: "Once we had talked to a number of people in the industry, a review meeting was held."

“From that the suggestions were distilled into a series of proposals on which we now intend to consult the whole industry.”

This includes taking a look at the training record, registration of events, capturing points for events that are not PIPR registered and consolidated invoicing for firms signing up a large number of members.

Sam said: “The consultation is all laid out in a very logical way which should encourage many more people to take part.”

The consultation is open until April 1 and anybody wishing to take part can do so by following this link
