Update risk assessments in FSP

Monday, July 13, 2020

Within the scope of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme, feed materials must be subjected to a safety assessment by means of a risk analysis, in accordance with the HACCP principles. 

Based on a desk study, carried out by the members of Technical Committee Feed Support Products (TCFSP), 18 approved (10 new and 8 updated) feed materials are included in the Feed Support Product (FSP) list. The inclusion of feed materials in the Feed Support Product list (via the approval of its risk assessment) is a requirement of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme. Only products on this list can be used by GMP+ certified companies.  

You’ll find an overview of the (new) approved feed materials and back-ground information about the changes in the FSP here

Please note: All these changes have a direct affect the GMP+ Monitoring database:

  • Addition of new feed materials: if new feed materials are included in the FSP-list, these new feed materials will automatically be included in the GMP+ Monitoring database. GMP+ participants can add (and consult) analysis results for these new feed materials.
  • Modification of feed material names: if the name of a feed material changes in the FSP-list (in all or one of the 3 published languages), it will also change in the GMP+ Monitoring database.
  • Deletion of feed materials: if a feed material is deleted (removed) from the FSP-list, the addition of new analysis results for this feed material in GMP+ Monitoring database is no longer possible. However, the historical information on previous analysis results will remain available for consultation.

If your feed material is not included in the FSP-list or your process deviates from what is described in the risk assessment, please submit a risk assessment application. Information about the procedure and deadline to participate in a TCFSP meetings is available on our website.
