The standard provides a set of requirements for a farm management system detailing best practices to ensure the production of safe and high-quality produce during all phases of farm operations, including pre-production (e.g. hatchery, breeder stock and pullet), production (e.g. laying stages), egg collection, and post-production (e.g. management of spent birds, etc.), while minimising impact to the environment and upholding the welfare of animals. It applies to chicken layer and quail layer farms.

The scope of the standard covers the following four areas of agriculture farm production:

a) Food safety and quality;

b) Animal health and welfare;

c) Environmental management; and
