Update risk assessments in FSP

Monday, October 19, 2020

A number of (new) feed materials have been approved after risk assessment.

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 (8 new and 10 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 background 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. In this way we work on feed safety together.
