What is Cattle Health Certification Standards (CHeCS)?

CHeCS is the self-regulatory body for cattle health schemes in the UK and Ireland. It is a non-trading organisation established by the cattle industry for the control and eradication of non-statutory diseases, using a set of standards to which all licensed cattle health schemes must adhere.

It brings everything you want to know about controlling disease and improving the status of your herd into one place.

CHeCS’ principal objectives are:

•          To promote improvements in cattle health and welfare.

•          To provide standards and certification for Cattle Health Schemes.

•          To develop and maintain links with cattle farmers, breed societies, veterinary practitioners, laboratories, Government agencies and animal welfare organisations to promote the above objectives.

These standards ensure that herd health status in one scheme is equivalent to that in all other schemes in the UK and Ireland. Close collaboration by CHeCS with other countries ensures that licensed schemes in the UK and Ireland are as good as any in the world.
