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.
The Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) has welcomed the granting of equivalence for UK certified seed of cereal, fodder, beet, vegetable, oil and fibre plants by the EU, which means that seed can now be exported to the EU.
In response to the continued uncertainty over EU Exit, this year the AIC Switchboard will be available for any Member concerns that arise, in addition to the usual availability by staff to cover Sector emergencies.
