This research project aims to review existing data capture systems available for use in beef, sheep and pig abattoirs using criteria developed in the project.
<p>Existing data capture systems will be evaluated using agreed criteria.
<p>Up to three systems will be selected for detailed evaluation and recommendations made at a workshop for a system that most closely meets the criteria.
Proposed EU legislation will require the results of anti- and post-mortem meat inspections to be recorded and evaluated by the Official Veterinarian.
<p>Various electronic systems are in use in Europe and the rest of the world, and the Agency requires a review of these systems against criteria developed to meet UK data collection requirements.
