Accreditation for FAMI-QS Management Systems

FAMI-QS is a base standard program in ANAB's fee schedule.

To be recognized, a CB must be accredited by a FAMI-QS recognized AB, and ANAB is recognized to deliver accreditation under the FAMI-QS scheme.

The FAMI-QS Code addresses safety, quality, and regulatory compliance of specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures by:

  • Minimizing the risk that unsafe specialty feed ingredients and their mixtures enter the feed and food chain.
  • Enabling an operator to implement the objectives of the Feed Hygiene Regulation (183/2005/EC).
  • Providing measures to ensure that other feed safety regulatory requirements are met.

Please refer to the information about the accreditation process at How to Become an ANAB-Accredited Certification Body.

You can view the FAMI-QS application in .pdf format to understand specific requirements but the application process must be completed online via ANAB's EQM database; first-time EQM users must register to create an account.
