The Field Service, Laboratory and Processing Center Advisory Committees meet annually or as needed to review the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB) auditing manuals and submit recommendations for revision(s). Each advisory committee's minutes are written and made available to the service providers for their service area. The minutes are also made available to the Audit Review Committee (ARC) for review and action and to the QCS Advisory Committee and the National DHIA Board of Directors for discussion and comment.

The recommendation(s) of each advisory committee are only recommendations and are not final until approved by the ARC and subsequently the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding. Once approved, the revised auditing guidelines are published and available for review and/or download.

It is the responsibility of each participating service provider to ensure that they are using the most current version of the auditing guidelines for their service provider area.
