Slaughter House

All slaughterhouses will be required to comply in full by November 5, following an adjustment period of six months to enable businesses to install a suitable CCTV system.

The new laws require all abattoirs to install and operate a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) system, keep CCTV images for 90 days, and make the images available to inspectors.

You commit an offence if you do not:

a) Install a CCTV system that provides a complete and clear image of killing in all
areas of the slaughterhouse where live animals are present;
b) Operate a CCTV system capable of uninterrupted operation;
c) Keep your CCTV system operational and in good working order when live
animals are present;
d) Retain and store data, recordings or images for 90 days from the date of
