If – due to an exceptional situation – a GMP+ participant is unable to meet (one of) the GMP+ requirements, it is possible to request an (temporary) exemption from GMP+ International.

An exceptional situation for which an exemption can be requested includes: 

  • a special production method;
  • a temporary situation;
  • the purchase of a special product that is not available in the GMP+ chain;
  • the purchase of a mineral feed material from a non-certified supplier;
  • production or purchase of feed materials of which no risk assessment has been included in the product list of the Feed Support Products (FSP) yet.

All exemptions are temporary in nature and apply for a period during which the GMP+ participant works on a solution.
