FSNS Certification & Audit, a Certified Group company, is pleased to announce its accreditation from the California Department of Food and Agriculture to perform compliance audits for California Proposition 12.
Prop 12 mandates minimum space requirements for specific farm animals like egg-laying hens, breeding pigs and veal calves. It also requires distributors to become certified to ship qualified products into California. Compliance is crucial for producers and distributors who aim to sell animal-derived products in California, irrespective of where the animals are raised. Enforcement begins Jan. 1, 2024, making it crucial that producers and distributors be prepared.
"FSNS C&A is pleased to be able to offer our services to aid in providing compliance to Prop 12 requirements," said Lori Ernst, SVP of Audit Services, FSNS C&A. "We have a large group of qualified auditors trained and ready to help sites and distributors gain compliance to Prop 12 requirements."
Through Prop 12 compliance audits, FSNS C&A helps businesses verify that their animal housing conditions and recordkeeping meet the law's requirements. A Prop 12 Compliance Certification from FSNS C&A facilitates seamless operation in California and appeals to consumers focused on sustainable practices.
"Compliance to new requirements can be challenging," said Ernst. "We at FSNS C&A can help both producers and distributors navigate the requirements and gain compliance to the Prop 12 requirements."
