Early Warning System
Have you detected (possible) unsafe feed? If so, notify us via this Notification Form. This allows us to join forces to prevent any consequential damage for you and the chain as much as possible. Safe feed is and shall always be a joint responsibility.
What is the Early Warning System?
In the end, feed safety still is in the hands of humans. Things can go wrong. In that case, the Early Warning System (EWS) is an important safety net that helps limit the extent of, or mitigate a (potential) problem at an early stage, with the help of adequate measures. The requirements for certified companies with regard to EWS, are listed in GMP+ BA5 Minimum requirements EWS .
How do I submit an EWS-notification?
With the help of the decision tree at the left of this page, you can assess whether a threatening situation exists. Subsequently, you can use the EWS form, also at the left of the page.
Via this EWS-notification form, you can report risks and (imminent) calamities in feed. After submission, GMP+ International will perform an initial assessment. If necessary, GMP+ International will contact you. All information is treated confidentially. When the situation does not seem to be under control, GMP+ International publishes a warning to inform companies about this.
What does an EWS warning contain?
In these warnings, the relevant product (generic name), the undesirable substance(s) and detected value(s) are specified as well as the country of origin. Details of the relevant company are never published.
Even when a situation is under control, GMP+ International may decide to publish the warning. This allows certified companies to learn from other situations, so that comparable cases can be prevented in the future. Recent and old warnings are listed on the GMP+ Portal.
When you sign up for the newsletter, download the EWS app or frequently check the website, you will stay informed.
