A number of (new) feed materials have been approved after risk assessment
06 December 2018
Within the scope of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme, feed materials 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), 11 approved (new) feed materials are included in the Feed Support Product list. The inclusion of feed materials in the Feed Support Product list (via the approval of its risk assessment) is a requirement of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme. Only products included in this list can be used by GMP+ certified companies.
In the table here, you’ll find an overview of the (new) approved feed materials and more back-ground information about the changes in the FSP.
Important: please note that all these changes directly affect the GMP+ Monitoring database:
- Addition of new feed materials: if new feed materials are included in the Feed Support Product list, these new feed materials will automatically be included in the GMP+ Monitoring database. GMP+ participants can add (and consult) analytical results for these new feed materials.
- Modification of feed material names: if the name of a feed material changes in the Feed Support Product list (in all or one of the 3 published languages), it will also change in the GMP+ Monitoring database.
- Deletion of feed materials: if a feed material is deleted (removed) from the Feed Support Product list, the addition of new analytical results for this feed material in GMP+ Monitoring database is no longer possible. However, the historical information on previous analytical results will remain available for consultation.
If your feed material is not included in the Feed Support Product List or your process deviates from what is described in the risk assessment, this can be solved by submitting an application. Your application must be done by submission of a risk assessment of that feed material. All relevant information (including the template of a risk assessment) is available here.
The latest date of submission is 18th of January 2019. The applications submitted before that date will be assessed in the Technical Committee FSP of 14th of March 2019. Applications received after 18th of January 2019 will be addressed in the next meeting of 20th of June 2019.
