Our Major Successes

 $100M benefits to intensive livestock industry through changes to AgVet regulation 

March 2015

 

FIAAA Executive Committee met with Minister Barnaby Joyce when he announced changes which provide improved access to feed ingredients and additives by simplifying regulations and cutting red tape.

 

Industry has estimated a potential benefit exceeding $100M to the intensive livestock industry.

The Feed Ingredients & Additives Association of Australia (FIAAA) welcomed the decision by the Australian Government to implement changes to the registration process for feed ingredients and additives.

 

These changes reflect the recognised safety of ingredients and additives and are anticipated to facilitate access to innovation and expand the range of ingredients and additives being made available to Australian livestock producers.

 

The changes also enabled contemporary and world leading regulatory process.

 

This is seen as a model for future endeavours by other industries and market segments.

 

Effective March 5, 2015, feed ingredients and additives in Australia may no longer be required to undergo a registration process with the APVMA and will be considered as “excluded nutritional digestive product” if the product meets key criteria in 4 specific areas:

  • labelling

  • ingredients

  • claims

  • manufacturing

 

Under the changes products can be used if individually or collectively the ingredients are included on one of several international lists, claims can be substantiated, they are labelled appropriately and they are manufactured using an audited industry Quality System (e.g. GMP, FIAAA, FAMI-QS and GMP+).

FIAAA members and its Executive team worked diligently with the Department of Agriculture and APVMA to implement changes that were obvious anomalies in outmoded regulations. The change followed extensive consultation with stakeholders especially including the feed industry (SFMCA), along with the Veterinary profession, the pet food industry and widespread consultation.
