Updates International Database Transport for Feed (IDTF)

04 May 2016

There have been agreed several changes for the IDTF by the International Committee for Road Transport (GMP+ International, OVOCOM, QS, Qualimat, GTP, AIC and Gafta). The changes are now implemented in the IDTF. Also a new document has been published in the IDTF.

1.     Procedure for (re)classification of products in IDTF

There has been published a new document, which describes the usual procedure for the (re)classification of products – from the application for a product by a company via the evaluation process between the ICRT-members up to the publication of a product in the IDTF. A (re)classification is done for products which are not yet published in the IDTF or for products, which shall receive a new cleaning regime, on request by a company which is certified for one of the schemes taking part in the ICRT.

You can find the document in the IDTF under “Procedures”: http://www.icrt-idtf.com/en/downloads/common_reassessment_procedure_-_en.pdf

2.     Modification of IDTF no. 40271: Vegetable, mineral and animal products for human food (except if mentioned elsewhere in the IDTF)

The examples (grains, salts for human consumption) which were mentioned under this IDTF no. have been deleted as they were misleading. Grains and salts for human consumption can be found under separate IDTF numbers.
