The post-mortem inspection carried out by the group of official slaughterhouse veterinarians is an important part of the official controls related to fresh meat and, as such, is one of the elements that determines whether or not it is deemed fit for human consumption and Notifiable diseases must be notified. Slaughterhouses are optimal environments to observe and record the particularities of the varied animal pathology that occurs. This information, if shared, can become a very useful and interesting tool for the group of professionals. Accordingly, a community of practice (CoP) for swine was created. The authorship of this manual is official slaughterhouse veterinarians of the Generalitat de Catalunya. The content has been conveyed through sheets containing scientific, technical and legal information for each of the diseases and injuries described. Likewise, the sheets are illustrated with images obtained in the different slaughterhouses in Catalonia. Thus, we know that the manuals are still incomplete and, therefore, it is expected to be able to complete them in future editions.
