FAMI-QS / European FEED ADDITIVES AND PREMIXTURES QUALITY SYSTEM

This European Code of Practice for Animal Feed Additive and Pre-mixture Operators ('Code') responds to the Regulation of the European Parliament and the Council laying down requirements for feed hygiene, (183/2005/EC), articles 20 to 22 of which encourage the development of guides to good practice for hygiene and the application of HACCP principles.

Implementation of the code aims to ensure the safety of feed additives and pre-mixtures; the operation of businesses in accordance with European feed hygiene requirements, and improved traceability. The code also applies to import from third countries of feed additives and pre-mixtures.

In order to align the Code with current animal feed legislation and various activities on national, industrial and/or association levels, it takes into account the principles of feed and food safety as well as HACCP principles.
