Code of Practice
The FAMI-QS Code of Practice provides requirements for implementing measures necessary to ensure feed safety and quality of products manufactured by processes, as defined by FAMI-QS. The Code covers requirements on Good Manufacturing Practices, on the HACCP programme and suggestions on continuous improvements to the design, management of operations and risks with a goal of maintaining feed safety and quality.
The ultimate goal of this Code of Practice is to ensure feed safety by minimizing unsafe practices and the risk of hazardous ingredients entering the food chain. Feed is considered unsafe for its intended use if it is likely to pose a risk to (has adverse effect on) human or animal health, or if the food derived from food-producing animals is unsafe for human consumption.
A set of Process Documents are provided as add-ons to the FAMI-QS Code. These are auditable documents, established in line with Codex Alimentarius (including HACCP programme) principles, for each process described in the Scope.
The Process Documents are meant to check for specific risks per process and to provide information on how to deal with particular issues in a more detailed and practical way.
