Humane Seal of Approval Program

After several years of recognizing excellence in equipment manufacturing and installation, American Humane Association is in the process of re-evaluating this program to ensure continued relevance. We welcome inquiries and discussions with equipment manufacturers on how their equipment can support our production standards. However, we will not be processing any new requests for equipment approval while we undergo this program review process.

We are considering a change of direction to recognize excellence in innovation which improves animal welfare as we believe that this is more in line with our mission: Promoting the welfare of farm animals through our science-based standards.
