In 2016 GMP+ International conducted a survey among the EWS notifiers of 2015 and the 1st half of 2016.
It showed that more than 65% of the notifiers see the added value of EWS. The survey also showed that we are perceived to be friendly, that we have relevant knowledge and that we provide objective, informative information. However, there was also room for improvement. EWS notifiers indicated that they would like to receive more information from GMP+ International and that they would like the notification process to be easier.
The first step was taken in 2016, by sharing more specific information. We provided insight into what products with what contaminants and in what counties were involved in an EWS report / case in 2016.
The next step is the launch of the EWS app, which allows us to facilitate the notification process, among other things. The app also alerts companies involved, by means of warnings, for current hazards and risks in the market. The app is the next step in optimally facilitating companies to produce safe feed for everyone, across the globe.
In just a few simple steps, you can simultaneously send the right information to both GMP+ International and your certification body. In addition, the EWS Notifier makes sure that EWS warnings are also sent to users. This way, you are instantly aware of current warnings.
Your notification will be received by the correct department of GMP+ International. In addition, you can easily attach photos and documents.
The app can be downloaded for both iOS and Android smartphones – search "EWS Notifier” in your store.
