UFAS BETA NOPS Code – aims and objectives.
The aim is to reduce the risk of disqualification from naturally occurring prohibited substances in feed.
The British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) has introduced assurance schemes designed to reduce the risk of naturally occurring prohibited substances (NOPS) in equine feeds. The Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) Code is designed for manufacturers and suppliers of compound feeds, and the Feed Materials Assurance Scheme (FEMAS) NOPS Code is a sister scheme designed for raw material and straights providers.
The UFAS BETA NOPS Code requires scheme members to evaluate the risk of a NOPS contamination during every step of the sourcing, storage, transport, and manufacturing processes for each product and to design their quality management systems in line with the risks identified. Suppliers of raw materials are regularly audited and staff also undergo rigorous training to ensure strict adherence to the Code.
Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS) including BETA NOPS
UFAS is a code of practice for the Manufacture of Safe Animal Feeding Stuffs. It is managed by the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) who maintain a register of feed suppliers and mills that have been verified as complying with the Code of Practice by an approved, independent verifier. Our selected manufactures comply to all of these standards.
The UFAS scheme is based on HACCP principles, an internationally recognised system of hazard analysis. The scheme is audited and certified by an independent certification body.
The Pure Feed Company is pleased to be part of these initiatives.
