Development of the GMP programme
• 1992 Start of the GMP programme
• 1995: Directive 95/69 EG with basic
quality requirements
• 2000/2001: start of the GMP+ programme
• 2003: certification by certification bodies
(instead of KDD)
• 2005: Reg. (EG) 183/2005 with HACCP
• 2006: Modified GMP+ certification scheme
for the animal feed sector 2006
Development of GMP Road Transport
• 1999: Start of GMP road transport
• 2000: Certification by certification bodies
• 2000 - present day: Changes to load classification
• 2005: Reg. (EG) 183/2005 with HACCP
• 2006: Modified GMP+ road transport
GMP (road) transport international:
• Cooperation from 2000 onwards with Ovocom (B)
• Cooperation with respect to inland waterways with
Belgium and Germany
• Many foreign companies participate
Why redesign the GMP programme?
 ISO 9001:1994  ISO 9001:2000
 NL-HACCP Food has been updated
 Improve accessibility
 more logical sequence, remove duplicates
 National focus  international (EU)
 Ready for accreditation
 Change to Feed Hygiene Regulation (Reg. (EG)
Final result
The GMP+ certification scheme is:
• Up-to-date
• Robust
• Applicable internationally
• Covers complete animal feed column
• Is supported by the animal
production chain
• Animal Feed Hygiene Regulation proof
Animal Feed Transport Legislation
European legislation:
• Reg. 999/2001: processed animal proteins
• Reg. 1774/2002: animal by-products reg.
• Reg. 178/2002: general food legislation
• Reg. 183/2005: animal feed hygiene reg.
National legislation:
• Animal Feed Outline Act
1. Implementation of European regulations
2. Administrative measures with respect to animal feed
3. Framework for European (animal feed) regulations
Structure of the regulations
General Food Law
Animal feed
and others
Control regulation foodstuffs and animal feed
Animal Feed Hygiene Regulation (DHV)
• Part of the total hygiene package 2006
• Sphere of operations: all animal feed
from primary product through to
trading and transport, incl.. import.
• Replacement for the approval and
registration directive
(Directive 95/69)
• HACCP is an obligation (Art. 6 DHV)
Animal Feed Hygiene Regulation
• Registration or certification for all
animal feed companies:
anyone who produces (including primary production), treats or
processes, trades or transports the animal feeds or raw
• Scope of the DHV is much wider than the
current approval directive 95/69 (EG)
• Registration can also be withdrawn
• Obligation to purchase from a
registered company
• Introduction of guides for best practice
Scope of the Animal Feed Hygiene Reg.
Producers of compound feeds
Producers and traders of premixes
Producers and traders of feed additives
(RL 95/69)
Traders and importers
Storage and transhipment companies
Producers of feed materials
Foodstuff companies with by-products
Transport companies (packaged and unpackaged)
Inland waterway and sea-going shippers
Arable and livestock farmers
(Reg. 183/2005)
From GMP 2003 to GMP+ 2006
• Change to GMP+ road transport 2006
Specific items for attention:
• Elements of the Animal Feed Hygiene
• C&D (processed) animal proteins
• C&D animal by-products

Structure of GMP+ road transport
Based on:
• HACCP Foodstuffs NL
• ISO 9001-2000
• Animal Feed Hygiene Regulation
• Experience with GMP+ standards
General structure of the standard
8 chapters, as in ISO9001
1 to 3:Scope, definitions, etc.

New structure of GMP+ road transport
• GMP B4.1 is a stand-alone standard
– see GMP01 + GMP07 and appendix
– all requirements with respect to transport now in
GMP B4.1
– sections with *) are the same as the
sections of other GMP+ standards
• Appendix 14 Road transport
– see appendix to GMP07
– preloading list with cleaning regimes
– information on cleaning regimes (previously
included in GMP07)
Amendments to the content
• Quality
feed safety
• New ISO 9001:2000 content/structure
• Ending of GMP07 grain-after-manure regulation
• Loading category road transport = LR
• Integration of elements from
Animal Feed Hygiene Regulation
• C&D rules for (processed) animal proteins
• C&D rules for animal by-products
(to be changed in 2006)
Elements of Animal Feed Hygiene Regulation
I I. General requirements:
II. Basic
1. Documentation and
2. Identification and
1. Personnel
2. Infrastructure
- buildings
- means of transport
- loading compartments
3. Complaints registration
3. Cleaning
4. Waste control
Transport sequence and cleaning regimes
Elements of Animal Feed Hygiene Regulation II
• Obligation to apply HACCP
• Generic HACCP for animal feed transport
• Result: specific control measures
– transport sequence
– cleaning and disinfection regimes
• Conclusion: companies which use the GMP
road transport
do not need to draw up their own HACCP
Content of the Road Transport Hygiene
(best practice guide)

C&D (processed) animal proteins
• Requirements of the EU BSE regulations:
– approved cleaning procedure and
inspection by the competent authority
– competent authority in NL is the VWA
• VWA interpretation of these requirements:
– approval of cleaning procedure
– reporting of cleaning to the VWA
– random sample check on the
cleaning by VWA (comparable to MOT
C&D (processed) animal proteins
Dicalcium phosphate and tricalcium
phosphate, blood meal and blood
products, biological fertilisers and soil
- Loading category LR1
- Approved cleaning procedure VWA
- Reporting of cleaning to the VWA
C&D (processed) animal proteins
Fish meal:
- Loading category LR1
- with cleaning procedure approved
by VWA, vehicles may be used after
for other purposes
- reporting of cleaning to the VWA
If the next load is feeds with fishmeal:
Loading category LR4
C&D (processed) animal proteins
Animal feeds with fish meal, dicalcium
phosphate and tricalcium phosphate and
blood products from non-ruminants, if the
next load is feeds for ruminants:
- Loading category LR1
- cleaning procedure approved
by the VWA
- reporting of cleaning to the VWA
If the next load is feed for non-ruminants
then loading category LR4 applies
C&D animal by-products
•Animal By-Products Requirements
-Cleaning and disinfection after every
use of the means of transport
•This relates to all feed materials of
animal origin
- dairy products, animal fats, etc.
-is still loading category LR4
-but will in 2006 be loading category LR2
-in accordance with the VWA C&D framework
C&D animal by-products
Easing of the VWA C&D cleaning and
disinfection framework after every use:
-If the next load is the same
product from the same producer
then cleaning and disinfection
take place periodically at the end of the
working day
-For melted fats periodic
cleaning and disinfection may suffice
at for example 1x per
day of 1x per week
Practical consequences of the
• GMP road transport becomes GMP+
• Transport logo lapses, there is a single GMP+ logo
• Content of manuals in accordance with the new
GMP B4.1 and/or by way of a good
cross-reference table

Transition period GMP 2003 - 2006
• Per 1 January 2006
– GMP+ 2006 replaces GMP+ 2003
• 2006 transition year
• GMP participant: contract GMP+ 2006
• Audit on the basis of GMP+ 2006
• Certificate GMP 2003
Certificate GMP 2006
Procedure for a request for loading
• Procedure for the submission of a
request for (re)classification of loads is
• Classification of loads continues to demand much
attention, partly because of:
- Compatibility with international
systems such as Leitlinie Futtermitteltransport and Qualimat
- Questions from the government related to
the animal feed hygiene regulation
Unannounced audit road transport
• Pilot unannounced audit
• Audit at the company gate
• Start pilot 1 January 2006
• Initially only participating
CI Vianorm road carriers
• End 2006 evaluation and decision-making
on final implementation of new form
of unannounced audit
Digital database of prior loads
• Digital list of prior loads on-line
• Easier and faster searching the list
-Search by product name, unique
number, loading category, synonyms
• Prior load information in 4 languages
(NL, EN, D and FR)
• Paper printout of list remains available
GMP-certified cleaning locations
• Draw up criteria for cleaning locations
• Cleaning locations certified by
government for times of contagious
animal illnesses
• Optional module linked to GMP+
