An accredited scanner: is someone who has met the scanning accuracy criteria to be accredited by Sheep Genetics. It is achieved by submitting several sets of scanning data to demonstrate repeatability.

Carcase data collected by provisionally accredited scanners may be submitted to Sheep Genetics for routine evaluation. Provisionally accredited scanners must attend to the next available Sheep Genetics scanning accreditation workshop to obtain full accreditation.
