• • • ICCF has launched its first two draft guidance documents for public consultation
The International Cooperation for Convergence of Technical Requirements for the Assessment of Feed Ingredients (ICCF) has launched its first two draft guidance documents for public consultation covering ‘Stability Testing of Feed Ingredients’ and ‘Sub-chronic Oral Toxicity Testing in Laboratory Animals’.
The draft guidance documents provide guidance to applicants on the study design for conducting a study supporting a risk evaluation of feed ingredients. Each document was developed with a panel of experts drawn from the ICCF founding members. This included regulators from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the European Commission (DG SANTE), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and industry from the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), the Animal Nutrition Association of Canada (ANAC), the EU Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and their Mixtures (FEFANA) and the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF).
The two draft ICCF guidance documents can be downloaded at the following links and stakeholders are invited to provide their comments by 01 February 2019 via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
