To make the Secure Supply plans for the movement of products easier to use, two things are needed:

  • permit criteria that were the same between commodities and products,
  • simplified requirements (where possible) for getting permits

With these things in mind, several parts of the SPS guidances are harmonized. 

The language of the secure poultry supply plans differ because they were developed for and with poultry industries that  have a wide range. 

When there is a difference between SPS criteria and those in the individual commodity supply plans the harmonized SPS criteria meet or add mitigation for additional pathways of exposure. Or the harmonized SPS criteria add additional samples to what is in the plan.
