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 http://pork.ahdb.org.uk/media/74916/pipr-consultation-documentfinal.pdf
