Verified Beef Production Plus (VBP+) is exploring new ways to deliver certification services to producers.
A new electronic audit management system has entered a pilot testing phase, and the organization is looking at ways to deliver VBP+ certification services by remote audit.
The goal is to ensure the same conclusions are determined from the remote audit as would be found through an on-farm audit.
The timeline for completion of this pilot will be determined in coming weeks, but the hope is for an expedited launch.
VBP+ has added protocols for physical distancing and other health guidelines for on-farm audits.
