To be able to display the SPCA Blue Tick logo on your products you must join the scheme and sign a legal contract with us. To do this you must adhere to our standards and pass an initial audit. Once you are approved, quarterly royalties are paid into the scheme, and this pays for the administration and promotion of the Blue Tick and ongoing annual audits. Spot audits can be conducted at anytime.


SPCA Welfare Standards & Policy

The SPCA National Animal Welfare Policy outlines our stance on key areas of animal welfare, such as the treatment of agricultural animals. The SPCA has, as its basis, the philosophy that all animals are equally deserving of our compassionate consideration, whether they be a dog left tied up and neglected in a backyard or a possum chewing through our native forests.

All producers who wish to be a part of our Blue Tick Accreditation Scheme must adhere to our strict Welfare Standards to ensure that their animals are treated in a cruelty-free manner.
