The IFSA Feed Ingredient Standard (IFIS) has been drawn up as a collaborative industry project to ensure that safety is placed at the forefront of feed business operations, with the aim of ensuring confidence in the safety of the feed supply chain. Safe animal feeds are essential to both animal and human health, farmed animals being the source of many products for human consumption. The safety of the feed and food chain must therefore be the industry’s primary objective.
These rules of certification provide certification of applicants against the IFSA Feed Ingredients Standard by accepted certification bodies, based on a decentralised implementation by the national standard owners / full members of IFSA, under co-ordination of IFSA. The aim of these rules is to implement the standard in a uniform way.
The purpose of this document is to contribute to the continued effectiveness of antimicrobials by providing a framework describing best practice.
