78. Temporary mutual recognition between Oqualim and OVOCOM

Feed safety scheme holders in Europe unite to harmonize temporary mutual recognition between OQUALIM and AIC, GMP+ International, OVOCOM and QS effective as from January 1st 2018.


Last September, the four organizations (OVOCOM AIC, GMP+ International and QS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with OQUALIM in order to work towards full mutual recognition among each other.


A first result of this collaboration will be a “temporary mutual recognition” between OQUALIM and “AIC, GMP+ International, OVOCOM, QS”, effective from January 1st 2018.

This temporary mutual recognition will cover the activities of manufacturing, distribution and placing on the market of compound feed and premixes. It’s applicable for companies that are certified under OQUALIM annex 1 “Purchase requirements for goods and services”.


The temporary mutual recognition is valid for a transition period of 2 year (2018-2019) in which all parties involve will further work towards a full recognition.


The extension of the scope of the mutual recognition to distribution and trading of feed materials, additives by OQUALIM certified companies will be the first step of this future common work, with the aim to reach an agreement by the end of Q1.
