Our SPCA Blue Tick® standards cover an animal's needs, not just the bare minimum. They also incorporate current legislation, codes of practice, scientific research, veterinary advice, and practical farm experience.
Additionally, the SPCA Blue Tick® standards also account for responsible animal management, skilled stockmanship, environmental design, considerate handling, transport and much more.
SPCA Blue Tick®
approval can only be granted after an independent audit has been successfully conducted by a third party auditor contracted to the SPCA and extensively trained to our standards. Following this, the SPCA Blue Tick®
will issue a 'Certificate of Approval' for the farm or the site that has successfully passed the audit.
