Changes to GMP+ FC scheme 2010 & 2020

Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Together with the GMP+ committees, who represent the GMP+ Community, several changes to the GMP+ Feed Certification (GMP+ FC) scheme have been prepared. These changes are being implemented in the GMP+ standards and will be valid from 1 July 2022. The changes have been made to both the GMP+ FC scheme 2010 and the GMP+ FC scheme 2020.

The changes concern the documents:

Some parts of this standard have been rewritten due to a copyright claim by the NEN (Stichting Koninklijk Nederlands Normalisatie Instituut). The new version has the same content but with different text. The documents that support you in using this document (S9.93 Transition certified companies – list of changes and S9.95 Transition Cross Reference tables) have also been updated accordingly.

The standard is updated to include the changes in the VLOG standard, V22.01.

What do you need to do?

Please download the latest version of the scheme documents from our website. Make sure your company or Certification Body complies with the latest changes to the scheme by the specified implementation date.
