FAMI-QS, GMP+ International look to facilitate world feed trade

FAMI-QS and GMP+ International have established a memorandum of understanding with the view to facilitate the world feed trade by eliminating technical barriers to trade without jeopardizing feed safety.

FAMI-QS and GMP+ International have established a memorandum of understanding with the view to facilitate the world feed trade by eliminating technical barriers to trade without jeopardizing feed safety.

The objectives of the memorandum are:

  • To ensure equivalence for the conformity assessment results. This will allow participants to buy from operators who are certified under the other scheme.
  • To provide technical assistance in the EU and third countries for feed safety.
  • To promote the accreditation activities at both EU and global levels.
  • To open and maintain channels for the interchange of information and knowledge.
  • To provide commitment to EU competition law.
  • To commit to the agreement of the World Trade Organization on technical barriers to trade.
The scope of the agreement comprises the production and trade of feed products covered by the two schemes. Those, certified under the FAMI-QS scheme, are accepted within the GMP+ FC scheme, and vice versa. Next to the acceptance of each other’s certificates, FAMI-QS and GMP+ International have agreed to work together, especially on topics like accreditation, harmonization of schemes and promotion of feed safety assurance all around the world. Under the framework of the memorandum, FAMI-QS and GMP will also launch a global benchmark exercise.
