Future of Pig Industry Professional Register to be discussed
The register was set up in 2007 and since then there has been a steady growth in membership but AHDB Pork has decided to take a step back and examine the whole of PIPR closely.
The aim is to look at the functionality and day-to-day running of PIPR together with the value it actually offers members.
The consultation is being led 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.”
These suggestions include 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.
Bowsher added: “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 1st April and anybody wishing to take part can do so here.
