Fami-QS :  Food Safety Management System

Fami-QS is a derivation of European Feed Additives and Premixtures Quality System.

FAMI-QS code of practice bases itself on a Quality Management System. The certificate guarantees the implementation of the requirements for feed hygiene in animal nutrition as laid down in Regulation (EC) No. 183/2005.

The European Regulation on Feed Hygiene (183/2005) sets up hygiene and safety requirements for the whole feed chain this includes feed additives and premixtures. This Regulation also promotes the establishment of codes of practice in the feed chain. Therefore the feed additive industry has decided to establish a code of practice covering feed additives and premixtures (as defined in Regulation 1831/2003/EC on additives for use in animal nutrition).

This code is the FAMI-QS Code of Practice for Feed Additive and Premixture Operators. A parallel and independent certification system has been developed by FAMI-QS Asbl. Participation in the FAMI-QS auditable system is based on voluntary commitment.

The FAMI-QS Code is certified by independent certification bodies, and run by the FAMI QS Asbl association.
