Responsible Use of Medicine Training for pig producers 

A new standard requires at least one person who is responsible for overseeing the use of medicines on the unit to have undertaken training since January 2018.  

  • A person on the unit that oversees medicine use needs to undertake a course (online or in-person) from our approved list of training providers – which can be found here.  Evidence of completion of the course, not just the date the course is booked, must be submitted as corrective evidence for a non-conformance against this requirement to be closed out by your Certification Body.  
  •  Courses undertaken between 1st Jan 2018 and 31st Oct 2021 do not need to be from our approved list. If the course covered the use of veterinary medicines, it is acceptable, including courses focused on other livestock species. This includes the Safe Use of Vet Medicines module offered as part of the AHDB Stockperson Development Scheme. You will need to show a certificate of course attendance or completion to the assessor.
