Complete the Farm Assurance Review survey

10 July 2024

Taking notes

The Independent Commission wants to hear your views – complete the UK Farm Assurance Review survey by Saturday 31 August 2024 to have your say.

We have received the following information from the Independent Commission. This is separate from the individual surveys carried out on NFUonline and in the regional farm assurance meetings earlier this year, the results of which will be used to feed into the NFU’s response to the farm assurance review.

You may be aware that the national farming unions and AHDB have sponsored an independent review of the UK Farm Assurance System which is planned to report at the end of this year.

Among other topics, the review is examining:

  • How farm assurance can deliver value back to scheme members.
  • How standards are developed to meet the evolving needs of members, the markets they serve, sector diversity and in appreciation of the global marketplace.
  • How assurance members are engaged with (including the development of standards) and inspected and how technology is used in assurance now and in future.
  • How assurance schemes can and should fit with regulation and government schemes to best serve members.

The Commissioners leading this review would like you to participate in a survey that will help provide evidence for the review, and will assist in the development of its recommendations.

We are seeking views, in a variety of ways, across the UK agri-food industry, but this is your chance to tell us your experiences of farm assurance so that we hear directly from the farming community.

The survey will take 10–15 minutes to complete. We realise that you have many other calls on your time, but this is the first occasion, in many years, that a comprehensive evaluation of UK farm assurance has been undertaken, so we want as many people as possible to share their views with us.

We look forward to receiving your submission and thank you for your contribution to this important review.
