Code of Practice

The North American Rendering Industry Code of Practice was developed by a task force convened by the rendering industry. The task force members represented a cross-section of the poultry, swine, and cattle packer renderers, independent renderers and protein blenders.

Feed safety related issues and biosecurity concerns in the United States and elsewhere in the world have highlighted the importance of continually evaluating and improving feed safety programs in order to enhance consumer confidence and facilitate domestic and global trade. The standards stipulated in this Code of Practice offer a basis for educational programs as well as recommended practices for APPI members, recognizing that processes and finished products are often unique.
