"The European Feed Ingredients Platform (EFIP) is a voluntary platform of the major European feed ingredients representatives aiming at an EU wide harmonized understanding and implementation of the EU feed hygiene regulation.
Together, the different sectors and their companies share experience, cooperate and offer concerted guidance to their members and other stakeholders on the shared, non-competitive, issue of feed safety.
Such a harmonized approach strengthens the feed safety situation for the EU livestock industry, the feed chain and ultimately increases the confidence of the consumer in the EU 27. Furthermore, it facilitates trade within the EU internal market by providing uniform requirements.
EFIP members have developed EU harmonised feed safety management systems (Codes) based on European Guides. They contain the requirements for a management system, prerequisite programs and hazard analysis, according to the state-of-the-art practices in risk management. In addition, a third party certification system has been developed to make sure that the system will be uniform and consistently applied by the operators in the EU. The Codes can be used as a stand-alone document or integrated in a farm to fork chain approach."
