A suggested framework of risk analysis for the region
Preparation – preliminary activities that need to be completed before you begin the inspection. This may include the collection of inspection and safety equipment prior to all other tasks.
Documentation – the collection, preparation and examination of documents before you begin the inspection of the commodity or goods. This may be at an office or at the point of entry.
Inspection procedure – this involves the visual examination of the animal or commodity, procedures to enable the identification of the animal or animal product and the inspection to detect symptoms of disease and an attempt to determine a diagnosis of the disease. Samples may need to be taken for further referral for diagnostic purposes. Follow-up actions to be taken will depend on the results of this initial inspection. The activities include those that are required for your own safety in accordance with local occupational and health requirements.
Reporting – this will include recording your inspection activities and completing the documentation to record the procedures undertaken and the results obtained. This includes referrals to other staff for further action. Completion of forms and collection of relevant fees may be legal requirements for internal audit.
