Certification has been possible under the requirements of the GMP+ Feed Certification (GMP+ FC) scheme 2020 for some time. A number of companies have now made the transition. The majority of companies still need to make the switch in order to be permitted to continue supplying their products and/or services in the GMP+ chain after 1 September 2024. That still seems a long way off, but we recommend you start looking at what preparations you can make in order to make the transition from the GMP+ FC scheme 2010 to the GMP+ FC scheme 2020 a smooth one.
Switching is not difficult, but it does call for preparations. You will notice that the requirements have not changed significantly. Above all, they have been formulated more clearly and succinctly and are generally presented as outcome-oriented requirements rather than means-oriented requirements . For companies, this means you have more freedom to determine how you comply with a requirement. GMP+ International will be pleased to help you take the right steps to ensure a smooth transition.
If, during your preparations or when working with the new documents, you have questions about the interpretation of requirements or you would like help finding the right documents, our colleagues at the GMP+ Helpdesk will be pleased to help. We have colleagues who speak English, French, German, Polish, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese.
You can reach the GMP+ Helpdesk using the contact form or by phone on +31 (0)70 307 41 44 on weekdays between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. (CET). We also offer support by e-mail or online via Teams.
