A COOPERATIVE PROGRAM
The NPIP is a cooperative Industry-State-Federal program through which new technology can be effectively applied for the improvement of poultry and poultry products throughout the country.
The provisions (i.e. rules) of the NPIP are developed jointly by industry members, State and Federal officials. These provisions establish standards for the evaluation of poultry breeding stock and hatchery products with respect to freedom from egg-transmitted and hatchery-disseminated disease. A Conference is held every two years where industry members, state officials and Federal officials gather to discuss changes to the NPIP provisions.
