Join the Animal Attraction Assurance Scheme (AAAS) and be reassured you’ve implemented the Industry Code of Practice correctly.
The Animal Attraction Assurance scheme is run by Kiwa Agri Food and developed in partnership with NFAN. The Certification covers farms adopting the very best safety standards for how adults and children interact with farm animals (covering you for the Industry Code of Practice).
It also audits farm parks against the Five Freedoms standard for animal welfare. The Five Freedoms were developed in 1965 and ensure the mental and physical needs of animals are met. It states animals should have; freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from discomfort; freedom from pain, injury or disease; freedom to express normal behaviour; and freedom from fear and distress.
Kiwa Agri Food have been selected by NFAN to carry out the AAAS annual inspection and manage the accreditation scheme. They are the Agricultural division of Kiwa (a large company providing certification services to a broad range of industries).
To become certified, an annual visit will take place at your convenience and should take between 2-3 hours depending on the size of your site.
You will have access to the AAA Certification Standards ahead of your visit by an AAAS inspector. They will tour the relevant sections of your farm park and check certain documents.
On passing the audit, a certificate will be issued to show compliance with the scheme. Should any issues be identified, you can correct these and still obtain your certificate under this inspection.
You can request the audit checklist below to review in advance and check you are ready for certification.
Being part of the AAA scheme is really a ‘win win’ for your customers, staff and the industry.
