Animal feed licence

Businesses that make, use, or supply animal feed must register to control potential food hazards at every stage of production.

Regulations apply to feed producers, merchants, haulage companies and animal farmers (where animals or crops are for human consumption).

Animal feed businesses must make sure they:

  • prevent the contamination or spoilage of feed
  • clean equipment used for mixing, storing or transporting feed
  • maintain records of feed or former food products used or sold
  • make sure staff have the right training

You will need to specify, using the correct codes, which activity relates to your business. Read Annex A (PDF, 39KB) of the Feed Hygiene Regulation to find the codes for regulated activities.
