Newly authorized feed materials and other developments in FSP

2017.12.07

Feed Support products (FSP) Newsletter 2017 no. 4

From now on it is possible again to submit applications. The latest date of submission is January 9th 2018. The applications submitted before that date will be assessed in the Technical Committee FSP of 6th March 2018. Applications received after January 9th 2018 will be addressed in the second meeting of 2018.

A number of (new) feed materials with associated risk assess-ment 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 analy-sis, in accordance with the HACCP principles.

Based on a desk study, carried out by the members of Technical Commit-tee 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 in-cluded 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 background information about the changes in the FSP.

  • The Risk assessment is harmonized with the GMP+ point of view that feed (ingredient) for insects do not have to originate from GMP+ (or equivalent) certified companies. Based on an HACCP analysis, the safety of an ingredient must be verified. This is explained in a footnote in Detail 1.

 

  • Reference to product codes conform the Catalogue of feed materialsis changed: Insect oil – 9.2.1 (old code 9.16.1) an Insect protein meal – 9.4.1 (old code 9.16.1)

Feed materials in the GMP+ Monitoring Database (MDB)


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.
