As a result of collaboration between the American Feed Industry Association and the European Union Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and Mixtures, the I-SF/SF Certification Program is now a reality, paralleling the U.S. FAMI-QS Program.

The new certification program will facilitate exports to the EU, ensuring compliance with Feed Hygiene Regulation EC183-2005 which requires application of HACCP. The FAMI-QS is one of three systems officially adopted by EU.

The first certificate has been issued to Kemin AgriFoods with other manufactures undergoing the certification process.

“AFIA welcomes this important achievement in feed and food safety, which is a result of the shared and coordinated efforts of the EU and U.S. industries,” said Joel G. Newman, president and CEO of AFIA.
