Be prepared. The GMP+ Feed Certification scheme has been updated - the deadline to switch is approaching.
The old GMP+ Feed Certification (GMP+ FC) scheme 2010 expires on 01 March 2025. All companies need to be certified under the renewed GMP+ FC scheme 2020 before then.
After 1 March 2024, audits using the GMP+ FC scheme 2010 will no longer be performed.
The renewed scheme is more flexible, focused on outcomes not processes, and has been developed in partnership with the animal feed sector.
We’ve made it as easy as possible to transition to the GMP+ FC scheme 2020 - we’ve prepared special guidance and documents, and our Helpdesk is here to help.
It depends on the size of your company and the nature of your work - but while it isn’t difficult to transition, it can take up some time. Once transitioned you can continue to deliver in the GMP+ chain under a more flexible standard.
From 01 March 2025 your 2010 certification will expire and you will not be able to deliver into the GMP+ feed chain. You can still be certified after this date, but to avoid disruption transition now.
