Animal Feed Hygiene

Shared Regulatory Services work in partnership with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to enforce animal feed hygiene legislation at agricultural and stockholding premises


Cows-eating-feedAnimal feed plays an important part in the food chain and has implications for the composition and quality of livestock products (milk, meat and eggs) that people consume.

Shared Regulatory Services aims to help protect consumers and animal health, and to ensure that those buying the feed are provided with sufficient information to allow them to make informed choices.

Register an Animal Feed Business

Under the EU Feed Hygiene Regulation (183/2005), all feed businesses that manufacture, market, distribute or use animal feeds must be approved or registered with Shared Regulatory Services. This includes manufacturers and retailers selling by-products of food production into the feed chain and livestock farmers and arable farms growing crops for feed use .

Approval requires an inspection visit to the establishment by Shared Regulatory Services before the establishment is allowed to operate. Registration requires placing the establishment on a register to enable authorities to undertake risk based inspections and take enforcement action as appropriate.

To register your premises, please complete and submit the following form:
