In 2018, a Minor Review of the APIQtick13x14® Standards relating to Free Range (FR) and Outdoor Bred Raised Indoors on Straw (OB) Certification was conducted.  At the conclusion of the Minor Review, the APL Board approved the recommendations put forward by the APL Animal Welfare and Quality Assurance Committee.  Version 4.4 10/2018 of the APIQtick13x14® Standards take effect from 1 January 2019. 

Each year the APIQtick13x14® Standards and Performance Indicators are reviewed by stakeholders, with opportunities for improvement identified and changes drafted for industry review.  In 2018, a Minor Review of APIQtick13x14® Standards and Performance Indicators relating to Free Range (FR) and Outdoor Bred Raised Indoors on Straw (OB) was conducted.

The Minor Review process included the formation of a producer and industry stakeholder working group, a review of the APIQtick13x14® Standards, suggestions for improvement / inclusion received, information gathering, a review by the APIQ Panel, and distribution of draft recommendations to the Working Group, with final recommendations being presented to the APL Quality Assurance and Animal Welfare Committee (QAAW) and finally the APL Board who approved the revisions in late November 2018.  The revised APIQtick13x14® Standards (Version 4.4 10/2018) took effect from 1 January 2019, all sites audited after 1 January 2019 will be audited to Version 4.4 10/2018 of the APIQtick13x14® Standards.
