GMPBasic® ostrich software


Ostrich farmers who are compliant with the new VPN for ostrich producers may register the compartments on the SAOBC traceability system (GMP)



Contact the GMP administrative personnel for assistance. You will need to provide your accredited in good standing OS (Ostrich compartment) number supplied by the SAOBC indicating that you have successfully passed the audit of your ostrich compartment. This audit will have been completed by the state veterinary offices in your region.

Your OS number will be verified with the SAOBC prior to installing your GMPBasic - Ostrich mode on your computer. The GMPBasic farm management system requires a Windows based OS (operating system) to function.

Ensure that you have the correct documentation as the SAOBC cannot make any exceptions for incorrect or unauthorized ostrich compartments.
