GMP+ seminar: Developments in the GMP+ FSA scheme

During 2010-2011 GMP+ International will be organising a number of information meetings all over the world. On 24 March 2011, it organises a seminar in Hannover, Germany.

The GMP+ goal is to inform participants about the developments in the GMP+ Feed Safety Assurance scheme.
 
This seminar will focus on GMP+ B2 (production of feed material and additives), GMP+ B3 (trade and collection), GMP+ B4 (road and rail).
 
Feed Safety Database
Attention will also be paid to the recently published Feed Safety Database. The Feed Safety Database (FSD) is an interactive database which comprises several parts of the GMP+ FSA scheme: risk assessments, monitoring (formerly Undesirable Substances Database), fact sheets and product standards.
 
The FSD is also a useful tool to create your own, company-specific risk assessment.
Finally we wish to inform you about our new organization and new activities, such as sustainability.
 
Audience
The interactive meeting is intended for board members, quality managers and quality employees of GMP+ FSA certified companies in the feed and food products sector.
 
The meeting is also of interest to auditors of certification bodies and advisory firms in the field of the GMP+ FSA scheme and quality assurance.
