Staying safe and legal
If you want to use any of the permitted foods – or co-products - mentioned on page 26, both you and your supplier must register with your local authority under the Feed Hygiene Regulation (EC) No 183/2005. The registration process is handled by the Trading Standards department of your local authority and you will have to satisfy certain requirements, which include that safeguards are put in place to avoid any cross- contamination with meat or harmful substances, and that comprehensive records regarding delivery, storage, and usage, are kept. There is no charge for registration. If the food waste contains a dairy product which is not produced on your own holding, you also need to inform the Animal and Plant Health Agency. In addition, anyone transporting dairy products or any other type of animal byproduct for use as animal feed needs to be registered as a haulier.
