This form is part of the guide to validating your ABP processing facility.
You must complete this form to apply for approval from the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) to process ABPs. Once you have applied for approval you can begin the validation process, in which you will need to demonstrate to the APHA that you can effectively treat ABPs.
Processing involves treating animal by-products in a ‘cooker’ at high temperature, sometimes under pressure, to remove water and separate animal fat (tallow) from the material.
For customers in England, return the completed form to APHA Specialist Service Centre Worcester.
