Changes in GMP+ BA3

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Over the past year, various changes, contributed by participants, have been addressed in the relevant subcommittees and in the International Expert Committee. In this, the desire of the sector to reduce the number of changes to a minimum, was taken into account. Changes that were actually implemented are necessary to reinforce the assurance of feed safety and to better match the requirements of the GMP+ Feed certification scheme with the daily practice of the participant, or they are the result of the changed feed legislation.
