Unless otherwise specified, “meat” (as defined by Act 40 of 2000) will be handled by the person handling the live animal from which the meat originates. [This also applies to “raw” / untreated “meat” for pharmaceutical, medical and laboratory use; as well as e.g. raw bones for the production of e.g. gelatine or ingredients for medicinal purposes].

 If a product is imported in a form that could be diverted into the human food chain, the requirements on the VIP & VHC will provide for human consumption & will be the responsibility of the vet responsible for that commodity (for human consumption).
