The Traceability Score Card check list can be used to evaluate an industries traceability information flows for a specific Food and Fibre industry sectors or sub sectors.

The score card is useful as a means of comparing and benchmarking the traceability capability of specific Food and fibre industry sectors or sub sectors.

The Traceability Score Card evaluated a number of different identification and information processes against the National Traceability Framework Principles. Each question is given a weighted value and a final score can be calculated.

The higher the score the more processes align with the National Traceability Framework Principles.

Over time a specific Food and fibre industry sector or sub sector score should improve as alignment to the National Traceability Framework Principles is adopted through industry.

The Traceability Score Card can be applied to individual companies to evaluate if they are aware of industry traceability standard as well as the level of adoption within the company.
