GENERAL1.1 Introduction1.2 Scope (diagrams, potential hazards )This certification standard applies to manufacturing and/or placing on the market products which are usedfor nutritional purpose in feed for ‘food-producing animals’. It applies to the following professionals:-Manufacturers of compound feed (AC)Manufacturers of mineral feed (AM)Manufacturers of premixes (PM)Manufactures of milk replacers (AA)Manufacturers of liquid feed (AL)Distributors (D)The certification scope are as follows-Production and placing on the market of compound feed, mineral feed, liquid feed, milk replacers,premixes,Distribution of compound feed, mineral feed, liquid feed, milk replacers, premixes,Distribution of feed materials, additives,Trading of animal feed in the regulatory sense (feed materials, additives, premixes, compound feed).NB: The distribution of feed materials, additives and trading of animal feed in the regulatory sense activitiescannot be certified by itself. This scope of certification must be linked to an activity in the manufacture and /or distribution of premixes and / or compound feed including minerals, milk replacers and liquid feed.Manufacturers of dietetic feed (feed with particular nutritional purposes) are also included in the scope of thisstandard and are concerned with its content depending on the type of products produced (mineral feeds,liquid feeds, compound feed .) which apply to the general obligations and / or specific as indicated below.The feed materials which have undergone treatment (lamination, flaking, extrusion, for example) on site arealso within the scope of this standard, the general and / or specific obligations set out below apply to them.Process stepsManufacturers ofcompoundfeed (AC)Manufacturers ofmineralfeed (AM)Reception of incominggoodsStorage and rusionincoming XXXXXCertification Standard Animal Nutrition – V5 for January 2020Manufacturersof premixes(PM)Manufacturersof milkreplacers (AA)Manufacturers ofliquid feed (AL)Distributors(D)P a g e 4 81

The companies which are certified according to theserequirements will obtain a RCNA certificate with the mention “International”.1.3 Terms and DefinitionsAcceptance: Control operation of an incoming good to permit its entry on a production site.Batch or lot: An identifiable quantity of feed determined to have common characteristics, such as origin,variety, type of packaging, packer, consignor or labelling, and, in the case of a production process, a unit ofproduction from a single plant using uniform production parameters or a number of such units, whenproduced in continuous order and stored together (Regulation 767/2009).Batch delivered: Quantity of feed delivered at one occasion in one place.Batch (medicated feed): All pharmaceutical units from the same initial bulk and having been subjected to thesame series of manufacturing operations. In the case of a continuous production process, the batch is a set ofunits manufactured in a given period of time.

This quantityof a batch cannot be less than the one defined by the supplier.Batch manufactured: Group or set of identifiable feed considered as qualitatively homogenous consisting ofa mixture or a set of successive mixtures of the same formula, or mixtures grouped in the same productioncycle.Batch cross contamination: Accidental presence in a batch of a residual fraction of another batch.Capability: Capacity or ability to achieve a product conformed to the requirements for this product.Calibration: operation that, under specified conditions, establishes a relation between the quantity valueswith measurement uncertainties provided by measurement standards and corresponding indications withassociated measurement uncertainties and, then uses this information to establish a relation for obtaining ameasurement result from an indication.CCP or critical control point: Step at which control can be applied and is essential to prevent or eliminate afood safety hazard or reduce it to an acceptable level (ISO 22000).Complete feed: Feed which, by reason of its composition, is sufficient for a daily ration (Regulation 767/2009).Compound feed: Mixture of at least two feed materials, whether or not containing feed additives, for oralanimal-feeding in the form of complete or complementary feed (Regulation 767/2009).In this guide of good hygiene practice, compound feed include the complete or complementary feed otherthan mineral feed, milk replacers or liquid feeds.Conformity: Fulfilment of a requirement. (ISO 9001)Contamination: The undesired introduction of impurities of a chemical or microbiological nature of foreignmatter into or onto an incoming or a finished feed during production, sampling, packing or repacking , storageor transport (EFMC guide).Contamination level: Expression of cross-contamination in percentage.Control measure: Action or activity t
