- 3A Sanitary Standards
- 3A Sanitary Standards have been developed for a variety of equipment used in the dairy industry, as well as some equipment used in egg processing. The founding organizations of 3A represent equipment manufacturers, dairy processors, and regulatory officials. 3A Standards are used as a reference under the Grade A Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO), the official regulatory document for the National Conference on Interstate Milk Shipments (NCIMS). 3A Sanitary Standards may also be required under many state and local regulations.
