Animal Feed Certification (Europe)

FoodChain ID in Europe now offers the Feed Chain Alliance Standard (FCA) animal feed certification through our addition of PROMAG to the FoodChain ID family.

The FCA Standard consists of a self-checking guide. The Self-checking Guide Animal Feed is the basis of the scheme and can be used by companies to shape their legally required self-checking system.

  • The FCA not only meets the legal requirements, but also the extra-statutory requirements that the sector imposes on itself. This standard is intended for, among others, producers of and traders in compound feeds, feed materials, premixtures and additives, as well as for transport, storage and handling. The FCA offers an approach to guarantee the safety and quality of the animal feed production chain.
  • By complying with the FCA standards, your company also meets the requirements of European and Belgian legislation.
  • An FCA certificate is also a sales condition in more and more countries, which means that obtaining the certificate entails access to new markets. If all activities of your company fall under the certificate, you also immediately have a validated self-checking guide.

Principles of Certification
1. Preparation of audits

PROMAG’s administrative department receives applications from operators wishing to be certified on the basis of a reference system. It then prepares all the documents required for certification, including the certification agreement and the audit documents. The latter are sent to an auditor qualified by PROMAG to enable him to prepare and carry out the audit.

2. Conducting audits

The auditor plans his audit taking into account the requirements of the application standard and contacts the operator to arrange a date. The audit is carried out according to a checklist which allows the conformity of the product, service or system to be checked against the requirements of the standard. Following the audit, the auditor writes a report and sends it to the PROMAG administrative department.

3. Certification

The administrative department receives the audit reports and enters all the required information in the PROMAG database and in the database of the standard holder. The file is then presented to the certification committee, which checks the audit report from a technical point of view and decides whether to grant certification. If this is the case, the administrative department issues the certificate and sends it to the operator.
