AFMA’s Memorandum of Incorporation makes provision for two membership categories:

  • Full Membership – Manufacturers of compound animal feeds; and
  • Associate Membership – Input suppliers and service providers to the animal feed industry; such as suppliers/manufacturers of raw materials, premixtures, feed additives and veterinary products, as well as animal feed traders, laboratories and suppliers/manufacturers of equipment.

It must be noted that a requirement for both Full and Associate membership to AFMA, is the compliance to the provisions of the AFMA Code of Conduct.

Prospective full- and associate members will be audited against the AFMA Code of conduct audit protocol by an independent third party assessment body within a period of three months for membership to be approved. 

Once prospective members have been successfully audited and their compliance assured via recommendation by the assessment body, an AFMA Code of Conduct certificate of compliance is awarded to the member. New members will also receive a media pack with AFMA member logo’s and instructions for use. AFMA membership will be activated.

Please note that the audit fees are not included in the membership fees.

  1. Interested parties are required to complete and submit the online application form to apply for AFMA membership.  Please note that the form must be completed by either the CEO, COO, CFO, MD, GM or FM to be deemed a valid application.

  2. Once the submitted application reaches AFMA, the prospective member will receive an acknowledgement of receipt note to confirm that the application is in process.

  3. All applications are pre-screened and reviewed by the AFMA Membership Committee regularly before being recommended to enter the membership administration process.

  4. Successfully pre-screened applicants will receive a unique identification number and be notified in writing (Confirmation Letter) that they must arrange for an audit date with an AFMA approved assessment body.  A list of AFMA approved assessment bodies is available on the AFMA website at: https://www.afma.co.za/coc-assessment-service-providers/
    [Please note that without the unique AFMA member identification number, prospective members will NOT be able to arrange for third-party Code of conduct audits with AFMA approved auditors. The member ID number must be included on all official membership communication with AFMA and the assessment bodies].

  5. An appointment for the AFMA Code of Conduct audit should be made within two weeks of receipt of the Confirmation Letter. The audit must be completed within three (3) months of receipt of the Confirmation Letter.  Any delays must be communicated and agreed upon in writing with the AFMA office.

  6. After completing the AFMA Code of Conduct facility audit based on the relevant audit criteria,  the independent auditor will send an audit report to the prospective member and a summary of the audit findings and a final recommendation for membership to the AFMA Membership Committee.

  7. Following a positive membership recommendation and a cleared non-conformance report by the auditor, the AFMA Membership Committee will issue final approval for AFMA membership. A formal Welcome Letter will be sent to the member. The new member will receive an electronic (pdf) Code of Conduct compliance certificate with the unique member ID number and a media pack with the Code of Conduct logo and instructions for use.  A printed & framed certificate will be sent via the post at a later stage.

  8. New members will also receive a member contact information form with the conformance certificate and media pack and will be requested to complete and submit it back to the AFMA office. This will ensure that member companies receive maximum benefit from their membership and that their relevant personnel is kept informed on matters about their specific fields of interest.
