GMP+ FSA has been simplified. Now we’d like to hear from you.

Monday, December 9, 2019

After more than two years of listening, reviewing, writing and re-writing, together with the Working Group and various stakeholders we are excited to share with you the results of #ProjectGMP+2020. In response to comments and feedback from our community, the GMP+ FSA module has undergone a renewal.

Since our founding in 1992, GMP+ International has grown from providing a foundation for the Dutch feed industry to a worldwide, feed certification scheme with over 18,000 participants. Over the years, as the number of scopes and documents grew, our scheme lost some of its clarity. After carefully listening to our GMP+ Community, we decided it was time to change that. Together with a large group of stakeholders, we have the simplified GMP+ FSA module. Today, we are proud to publish the preliminary results of our work for the first time. We believe we have succeeded in simplifying our standards, while at the same time maintaining the same high level of feed safety assurance. Our GMP+ FSA module will change in three ways: 

  1. Restructured: there will be ONE general part with Feed Safety Management Requirements for ALL companies. For specific activities, additional requirements will be in place.
  2. Readable: the new GMP+ FSA module will be much easier to read and understand.
  3. Goal-oriented: the focus will be on the mandated outcome, much less on the process. This gives participants more freedom to find out what works for them.

Public Consultation 

From December 9th, 2019 a three-month period of Public Consultation will start in which we encourage you to give your feedback and opinion on the proposed documents. You are hereby invited to take part in Public Consultation.

Visit this page to participate.

Every comment we receive will be thoughtfully examined conform the scheme principles (webpage).
Proposals for improvements will be reviewed by the Working Group and validated by the 
International Expert Committee. This will result in the final GMP+ FSA module.

We highly value your opinion, because only by working together we can achieve Feed Safety Worldwide!
