We are responsible for Feed Safety Worldwide. The precautionary principle is the heart of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme. Every individual GMP+ certified company also has its own responsibility in this regard.
January's newsletter described the contribution that the Products List, the Risk Assessments, the Monitoring database and the Early Warning System make towards this shared responsibility. It also briefly explained what is required of the GMP+ certified companies and how GMP+ International manages the data. By doing this together, we are stronger and we know more.
In order to know even more, it is important to hear the views of users. For this reason, GMP+ International interviewed a number of firms about the Products List, the Risk Assessments, the Monitoring database and the Early Warning System.
In all cases, customers understand the value and the objective. All customers say that they want to retain the products, but that there is room for improvement. Nearly all customers use the products; however, they do not use all the available options/possibilities. They either do not know them or find them overly complicated.
Implementing the improvements is an ongoing process. Some points are simple and easy to tackle, while others will take more time. So, we will keep you up-to-date on developments via our newsletter.
Naturally we are open to feedback, so if you come up against anything, please let us know. In this way, you can contribute to Feed Safety Worldwide.
