GMP+ International has various different services available to support transport companies during implementation of the GMP+ FC scheme requirements. The services are intended to support GMP+ certified companies (or companies that wish to become GMP+ certified) in setting up their internal HACCP system.
HACCP is the tool to clarify the risks during transport and how to control them. The circumstances of each type of transport are different. The Excel lists the most common risks and corresponding control measures related to the different activities within the scope "Road transport of animal feed". This is an interactive tool. This makes it possible to adapt the specific circumstances of each individual transport company.
First pleae read the HACCP Transport Reading Guide. It contains a brief explanation of how the "HACCP Transport interactive Excel" works. The reading guide explains the steps to follow for your own HACCP analysis.
GMP+ Academy microlearning Safe transport of GMP+ feed
A microlearning is a low-threshold learning module that lasts no longer than 10 minutes and contains many practical examples. In cooperation with (transport) companies in the feed sector, a series of microlearning modules (Safe transport of GMP+ feed) were created that cover various aspects of transport; such as transport planning, use of the IDTF, loading and unloading, and cleaning the loading compartments.
In addition, there are some more general microlearning modules available that cover the application of HACCP principles and basic conditions (The Importance of HACCP for feed safety control during transport Feed Safety and Basic Conditions). Microlearnings are ideally suited to train new employees; or as refresher courses for the staff. They are available in multiple languages.
Detailed explanation in the Q&A transport
Together with the GMP+ Community, we are doing our best to articulate the requirements we have established as clearly as possible in the scheme documents. Nevertheless, there are topics that require further explanation. The 'Q&A Transport' is intended to provide information and explanation on the background, scope, practical implementation and implementation of the GMP+ transport requirements. It is intended as a guide for companies involved in various forms of GMP+ transport.
GMP+ International, together with other feed safety schemes, maintains the "International Database Transport (for) Feed". An international database where you can easily find the cleaning regime of your loading compartments and ensure the high level of feed safety of the feed you transport. Also, under “useful links” you will find several websites with information on authorised disinfectants in different countries.
GMP+ International collaborates with service providers who offer services that ensure efficient maintenance and improvement of feed safety management systems. These services will also contribute to the use of standardized and uniform modes of operation in the feed supply chain. The mentioned registered services are meant to support transport companies.
