Feed premises lists

Last updated:
11 May 2015
Under the EU Feed Hygiene Regulation (183/2005), there is a system for the registration or approval of business establishments (premises) that manufacture, market, distribute or use animal feeds, including feed additives.

The approval or registration of feed premises is mainly carried out by local authorities in Great Britain and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) in Northern Ireland.

Approval requires an inspection visit to the establishment by the local authority before the establishment is allowed to operate. Registration requires placing the establishment on a list to enable authorities to carry follow-up checks and take enforcement action as appropriate.

Approved feed business establishments

The FSA compiles a list of approved feed premises in the UK, based on information provided by local authorities in Great Britain and DARD in Northern Ireland.

The Animal Medicines Inspectorate (AMI), which is part of the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD), approve premises that market, manufacture or use specified feed additives (e.g. coccidiostats, histomonostats and non-antibiotic growth promoters). AMI’s list of approved feed premises can be found on VMD's website (see External site links).

Registered feed business establishments

The Food Standards Agency holds lists of registered feed premises, based on data that it receives from local authorities in Great Britain and DARD in Northern Ireland.

Further information

For queries concerning registration, feed inspections or enforcement visits etc., please contact the Lead Feed Officer in the Department responsible for feed law enforcement at your local authority.

Please see the link to DARD's list of approved feed premises in Northern Ireland.
