Animal Feed Regulatory Program Standards (AFRPS)
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) are pleased to announce the launch of a new program for State Animal Feed Regulators. The Animal Feed Regulatory Program Standards (feed standards) are now available for implementation by State programs. On January 30, 2014, OMB approved FDA’s request to collect information for the feed standards under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The feed standards have been assigned OMB control number 0910-0760.
The feed standards establish a uniform foundation for the design and management of State programs responsible for the regulation of animal feed. Through implementing the draft feed standards, a State program will be better able to achieve and maintain programmatic improvements that help ensure the safety and integrity of the U.S. animal feed supply. A State’s implementation of the feed standards also helps to ensure a uniform and consistent approach to feed regulation among jurisdictions such as the sharing of information and the coordination of resources.
