AIC have developed a range of Trade Assurance Schemes covering areas of the Agri-supply industry in which our members are engaged. They fall into three categories, Food/ Feed Safety, Fertiliser Security and Traceability and Safe Application of Seed Treatments.
Provides an assurance system for the trading of combinable crops for food, feed and biofuel use, the trading of compound feed and feed materials and the transport and storage of combinable crops and animal feeds to meet safety requirements defined by legislators and industry.
AIC caters for a range of transport needs of AIC members from assurance, to providing derogations and helping shape policy decision at Government level. Haulage fleets can be assured through our assurance schemes to meet the various requirements of food and feed safety. Derogations can be applied for via the Departments of Transport to ensure the haulage fleet is keep mobile in challenging conditions. AIC also work with the key transport trade bodies including the Road Haulage Association and the Logistics Association.
AIC’s Annual Report summarises some of the work that AIC and AIC Services has covered on behalf of our members, participants and stakeholders behalf. It is a snap shot of the policy work the organisations has carried out by agri-supply sector and service.
Due to the current uncertainties about developments in the Covid pandemic, and in particular the effects of recent and upcoming changes to government rules, AIC has decided to postpone the next step of the plan to return to on-site auditing for the assurance schemes.
