Have you been looking for an easier way to figure out if the Preventive Controls for Animal Food (PCAF) rule applies to your facility?

Have you gotten overwhelmed trying to answer “does PCAF apply to my facility?”

If so, we have a new resource just for you! Our new interactive decision tree, “Does PCAF Apply?” is a short, easy-to-use tool for answering this important question.

The tool is for informational purposes only; it does not take the place of independent legal advice, and it is not intended to be used as legal advice.

We know it can be difficult to know if a rule applies and we know you’ve got a lot of other things going on, especially now. We’ve developed the 12-question decision tree to help you.

Simply download and open in a browser to answer Yes and No questions, and follow the arrows, until you reach a STOP.
