This manual provides updated comprehensive information and practical guidelines to assist producers and all stakeholders along the production and distribution chain to comply with the regulatory framework, which have or will come into force in response to the Codex Alimentarius Code of Practice on Good Animal Feeding. The application of this Code is an important step for the expansion of international trade in feed products as well as in products of animal origin. Both food exporting and importing countries can benefit from a more level playing field to support the trade of safe food products. This publication is intended to guide managers of feedmills and the feed industry as a whole.

It will also be of value to officers engaged in feed inspection, with their supervisory roles in feed safety. This manual is targeted at the commercial feed industries and farm-based feed mixers in developing countries and emerging economies in their endeavour to meet the rising quality and safety requirements of both the export and domestic markets, with the increasing participation of large-scale retailers everywhere.
