Dairy Equipment, Meat and Poultry Equipment Review Programs  
AMS offers two voluntary, user-fee supported equipment review and certification programs to the food processing industry: the Dairy Equipment Review Program and the Meat and Poultry Equipment Review Program. AMS specialists base equipment reviews on an examination of engineering drawings and of actual processing equipment, required for the final review, often with the participation of design engineers. We provide these voluntary services upon request to equipment manufacturers who wish to have their equipment certified or would like to display the AMS official identification mark on their equipment (meat & poultry equipment only). AMS charges fees for these reviews, related travel and other expenses.

 

 
Forms are fillable on line but must be printed and signed. The signed form may be faxed (540-361-1199) or emailed to the Dairy Grading Branch for consideration.
