Newly authorized feed materials

13 July 2016

Feed Support products (FSP) Newsletter 2016 no.4

Intended for: all GMP+ certified companies and certification bodies

 

Within the scope of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme - protection of the health of humans and animals and of the environment - feed materials for feed must be subjected to a safety assessment by means of a risk analysis in accordance with the HACCP principles. Based on a desk study by the members of Technical Committee Feed Support Products (TCFSP), the risk analysis are assessed. If the assessment shows that the feed material can be introduced in a controlled manner, it will be placed on the FSP product list. Over the past period, several feed materials and their processing aid are assessed with a positive result. These feed materials are placed on the FSP product list. GMP+ certified companies can use these feed materials.

 

In the table below, you’ll find an overview of the new feed materials and more background information of the changes in the FSP:
