Newly authorized feed materials and other developments in FSP

2017.07.27

Feed Support Products (FSP) Newsletter 2017 no. 3

From now on it is possible again to submit applications. The latest date of submission is August 25th 2017. The applications submitted before that date will be assessed in the Technical Committee FSP of November 7th 2017. Applications received after August 25th will be addressed in the first meeting of 2018.

A number of (new) feed materials with associated risk assessment have been approved and included in the FSP.

Within the scope of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme – protection of the health of humans, people and the environment – feed materials for feed 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), the risk analyses are assessed. If the assessment shows that the feed material can be inserted into the chain in a controlled manner, it will be included in the FSP product list.

Over the past period, various feed materials and their processing aids have been assessed with a positive result. These feed materials are included in the FSP Product list. GMP+ certified companies can safely use these feed materials.

In the table below, you’ll find an overview of the new feed materials and more back-ground information about the changes in the FSP.

 

Feed material

 

Remarks

 

As part of the risk assessment (RA)

 

Mono-dicalcium sodium phosphate

The producer, Heinrich Nagel (GMP+ certified company), has stopped the production of this feed material.

According to our information Heinrich Nagel was the only producer of Magnesium calcite. Consequently this product should be removed from the FSP Product list.

Do you produce or process this feed material?

If you produce or process this feed material contact us prior to August 30th 2017. If after this date we have not received any information, this feed material will be removed from FSP.

Feed materials in the GMP+ Monitoring Database (MDB)
** Specific information regarding Auction fruits /Auction vegetables
Future submission of analysis results of the product ‘Auction fruits’ and ‘Auction vegetables’ (code 5.055 & 13.041, respectively) must be included under the product ‘vegetables and fruit, fresh’ (code 13.090). Previous analysis results for ‘Auction fruits and Auction vegetables’ (code 5.055 & 13.041, respectively) will remain available in the reports, but no new submission is allowed.

General
The inclusion of new feed materials, changes in product names or removal of feed materials also effects the GMP+ Monitoring database (MDB). For new feed materials it is possible to add analytical results from now on. When a product name is changed the name will also change in the GMP+MDB. For the removed feed materials it is no longer possible to add analytical results, but the historical analytical results will still be available for consultation.
