The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued the second draft of the ‘Animal Feed Safety System’ (AFSS).

The (AFSS) is the FDA’s programme for animal feed aimed at protecting human and animal health by ensuring safe feeds.

The programme includes oversight of labelling, production, distribution, and administration of all feed ingredients and mixed feeds at all stages of manufacture, distribution, and use, whether at commercial or non-commercial establishments.

The draft document defines feed as mixed feed as well as feed ingredients, as stated in Appendix I.

It covers the entire spectrum of agency activities from pre-approval of food additives and drugs for use in feed, to establishing limits on feed contaminants, providing education and training and conducting inspections and taking enforcement for ensuring compliance with agency regulations.
