Thursday, April 28, 2022
There have been several changes for the IDTF by the International Committee for Road Transport (GMP+ International, OVOCOM, QS, Qualimat, EFISC-GTP, AIC and AMA). The changes are now implemented in the IDTF. Please find here further information about the changes.
At the request of the companies, products and their cleaning regime are entered in the IDTF as soon as these are agreed by the ICRT. The date on which the change was entered in the IDTF is indicated by the ‘publication date’. The date on which the cleaning regime becomes mandatory is indicated with ‘mandatory from’.
4. Partial lifting of the feed ban on the use of processed animal proteins for animal feed
Since September 7, 2021, the European Union (EU) has partially lifted the ban on the use of processed animal proteins in animal feed in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2021/1372.
Existing limitations are eased under certain conditions:
- Processed animal proteins obtained from porcine animals and insects can be incorporated into poultry feed.
- Processed animal proteins obtained from poultry and insects can be incorporated into feed for porcine animals.
- Gelatine and collagen obtained from ruminants can be included into feed of non-ruminants.
The adaptation of this legislation has certain consequences for the IDTF. The ICRT has incorporated these changes into the database.
- Changes in /addition of the following IDTF numbers:
- 10176 "Collagen and gelatine of ruminants and compound feed containing these products"
- 10119 " Processed animal protein (PAP), derived from non-ruminants other than fish, farmed insects, porcine animals and poultry and compound feed containing these products"
- 10175 "Processed animal protein (PAP) derived from porcine animals and compound feed containing these products"
- 10177 " Processed animal protein (PAP) derived from poultry and compound feed containing these products"
- 10178 " Processed animal protein (PAP) derived from farmed insects and compound feed containing these products"
- 10153 “Other products derived from ruminants (see description)”
- Evolution of important requirements:
- Distinction of the minimum cleaning level according to the destination of the next load
- Adaptation of important requirements according to the certification scheme.
Please note that when national legislation is stricter than European legislation, it must apply.
If you have any questions, we invite you to contact your certification scheme.
