7th Annual International Feed Regulators Meeting (IFRM) – January 2014

The 7th Annual International Feed Regulators Meeting (IFRM) was held on 27-28 January in Atlanta, USA, prior to the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).

7th IFRM Agenda

The 7th Annual International Feed Regulators Meeting organized by IFIF in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) brought together  a record number of feed industry representatives and government officials from around the world together with IFIF and the FAO to discuss critical issues facing the feed sector.

The meeting proved an important opportunity for global industry and feed regulators to discuss key issues for the feed and food chain, such as capacity development for feed safety to implement the Codex requirements. Other topics at the 7th IFRM included a discussion of best practices in new feed regulations in Canada and the US, as well as the presentation of the global Regulatory Convergence Project of feed ingredients and their mixtures, which builds on the 2013 IFIF ‘Comparison of Approval Process and Risk-Assessment procedure for Feed Ingredients’ report.
