Within the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme, feed materials and their processes 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), 29 assessed (14 new, 15 updated) feed materials and their production processes are included in the Product list. The inclusion of feed materials in the Product list (via the approval of its risk assessment) is a requirement of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme. Only feed materials which are shown on the Product list can be used by GMP+ certified companies.
You’ll find an overview of the (new) approved feed materials and their processes here.
If your feed material is not included in the Product list or your process deviates from what is described in the risk assessment, please submit a risk assessment application. Information about the procedure is available on our website. In this way we work on feed safety together.
Within the GMP+ FC scheme, only feed materials which are shown on the Product List may be used. We regularly receive questions including the following: when should a product be put on the list and how does that happen, what is the status of the Product List and what is the difference between the Product List and the EU Catalogue of Feed Materials? In this newsletter we explain more.
Next to that we added the following disclaimer on the Product List as well as on the cover of all Risk Assessments:
