As an addition to AFMA’s self-regulation drive and its already developed cornerstone, the AFMA Code of Conduct, the AFMA Transport Protocol was developed jointly by the Trade and Technical Committees of AFMA. It describes how raw materials and ingredients for use in the feed industry should be transported.

The Transport Protocol is an additional risk management tool, which clearly provides guidelines and cleaning regimes for different scenarios that will enhance feed-safety quality of raw materials and ingredients transported to the feed-manufacturing plants.

AFMA members have been introducing the Transport Protocol to their transport service providers during the past five years, with 2016 being the final year of introduction and implementation.

Enforcement of the AFMA Transport Protocol, as in the case of the AFMA Code of Conduct, will start during 2017.
