Expert Committees

EXPERT COMMITTEES

What is an "Expert Committee?"

Validus developed their Certified Programs to assist producers in verifying their animal welfare practices. The programs include a comprehensive audit of the farm’s practices that allows producers to gain certification based on industry standard practices, or specifications defined by a processor or retail customer.    

 

In order to make sure that the audit is based on science, industry standards, and best management practices, Validus has identified a group of experts that review the standards and audit tools on an annual basis.  When the committee meets, suggestions from clients and changes in the industry are taken into consideration to implement and make changes for the following year.  The committees are each made up of five individuals so that there is a majority vote when a decision or changes to the standards are made.
