FAMI-QS is the Quality and Safety System for Specialty Feed Ingredients. Since 2004, representatives of the above-mentioned Industry have worked together to devise FAMI-QS, the first code aimed at this sector of the animal feed business.

The FAMI-QS Code addresses safety, quality and regulatory compliance of specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures by:

  • minimizing the risk that unsafe specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures enter the feed and food chain;
  • enabling an operator to implement the objectives of the Feed Hygiene Regulation (183/2005/EC);
  • and providing measures to ensure that other feed safety regulatory requirements are met.

FAMI-QS is a pioneer in its field as it is the only certifiable code specifically aimed at specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures. It was also the first Community Guide to Good Practice to obtain official recognition from the European Commission as foreseen in the Feed Hygiene Regulation.

The FAMI-QS code is designed for international validity; thus, participants in FAMI-QS can be found all over the world. Today, certified companies are spread across more than 47 countries. Furthermore, we have a worldwide network of certification bodies which allows the implementation of FAMI-QS in any part of the globe.
