New Draft UFAS Codes of Practice Consultation




The Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) has issued out for consultation the new draft Codes of Practice for its Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS) which will come into force during Spring 2012. These are now available on the AIC Website.

UFAS is the leading trade assurance scheme for animal feed in the UK and covers the production of compound feeds, and the merchanting of feeds to farmers and feed producers. UFAS is the ONLY UK assurance scheme of its type to have mutual recognition status with all sectors of the grain trade both nationally and internationally.

The UFAS Working Group have thoroughly revised the standards over a period of two years to ensure that the codes reflect the latest legislative, industry and customer practice to ensure that your business meets these requirements. The codes are also instrumental in helping your business manage a feed safety incident by ensuring that the necessary due diligence is carried out.

The consultation includes changes to the UFAS documents (the scheme manual, Compound Feeds and Merchants codes), new documents identifying the schemes with which UFAS has mutual recognition and a summary document of the changes.

The closing date for this consultation will be midday on the Tuesday, 13th December 2011.

Any comments regarding the codes should be sent to Simon Williams at AIC on 01733 385230 or
