Consultation Platform for the Animal Feed Chain

The FASFC now recognizes the equivalence between the Feed Chain Alliance (FCA) Standard and the Self-checking guide Animal Feed (G-001). A separate certificate for the Self-checking guide is no longer necessary. More information.

Feed Chain Alliance standard (GMP Regulation)



The Feed Chain Alliance consists of three parts:

   - Part A, with the legal provisions
   - Part B, with the FCA provisions
   - Part C, with the certification rules


If your company wishes to be FCA certified, you will be required to apply both part A and part B.
Not to worry : the chance that you will need to apply all the documents is very small. Depending on your activities, the quality system which you have implemented, must meet the requirements included in some, but not in all the documents. It is therefore essential to decide first which documents will be applicable to your company. In order to facilitate your choice, click here to find a clear overview of those documents applicable to your company.
