Feed hygiene regulation

The provisions of EC Regulation 183/2005 (‘the Feed Hygiene Regulation’) came into effect on 1 January 2008, replacing the Feeding Stuffs (Establishments & Intermediaries) Regulation 1999.

The Feed Hygiene Regulation applies to the production of animal feed at all stages, including at primary level (on the farm).

The Feed Hygiene Regulation requires you to notify us of current animal feed activities conducted at any establishment under your control, with a view to registration or approval.

Please read the guidance from the Food Standards Agency if you are unsure whether you need to register your business or would like more details of the requirements.
