FEMAS 2019 Standard published
8 March 2019
AIC Services has published an updated FEMAS standard for the assurance scheme for producers and suppliers of feed ingredients.
The publication is a result of extensive review by the FEMAS Review Group in consultation with the certification body, FEMAS participants and auditors.
The new version of the FEMAS Standard will be applicable from May 1st 2019 and scheme participants will be required to implement it from that date. There will be no transition period for the new standard. However, any participant with an audit booked on May 1st will have two months to prepare, and up to 60 days to rectify any non-conformances.
Simon Williams, Technical Manager for AIC Services, said: “FEMAS is one of the critical assurance schemes delivered by AIC Services which provide assurance right across the supply chain and ultimately link into the Red Tractor scheme providing assurance to retailers and the consumer. We are committed to a process of reviewing and improving these schemes to ensure that they continue to be fit for purpose and deliver the highest possible standards across the industry.”
