Additive and premix production

Additives like vitamins, enzymes, or amino acids as well as premixes play a key role in ensuring optimum feed for livestock. Only additives that are approved for animal nutrition in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1831/2003 may be used.

QS certified producers of additives and premixes implement comprehensive quality assurance measures. These include provisions on procurement, labelling and traceability. All applicable QS requirements are outlined in the Guideline Feed Sector. Qualified auditors monitor compliance with the requirements regularly and independently.

The additive and premix producers arrange for continuous testing of their products by QS-recognised laboratories within the framework of feed monitoring of QS.

Feed Monitoring

High-quality feed forms the basis for good animal nutrition, and systematic feed monitoring is therefore of central importance. The QS feed monitoring system monitors compliance with limit and guidance values for substances like mycotoxins, dioxins, plant protection products and heavy metals.
