1 Manufacturing your own pet foods This guide covers the manufacturing of pet food with particular emphasis on the domestic production of pet food and treats in your own home - for example, home-made dog biscuits. Before you start manufacturing any pet food please contact your local trading standards service for advice as feed businesses, including all pet food manufacturers, must not operate without being registered or approved (as appropriate) with their local authority - usually the trading standards service. Additionally, EU regulations require that the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA - formerly the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency), as the competent authority, approves manufacturing plants where pet food uses or incorporates products of animal origin - for example, eggs, meat, milk, butter, honey. This includes premises manufacturing pet food in domestic houses even if using products of animal origin deemed fit for human consumption. The pet food must be labelled with mandatory labelling requirements, which are sometimes still referred to as a 'statutory statement'. In the guide What is a pet food? Manufacturing pet food Local authority registration or approval AHVLA approval for products incorporating products of animal origin Labelling Guidance on the manufacture of safe pet foods Penalties Key legislation What is a pet food? A pet food is any product produced by a pet food manufacturer (even if produced in your own home) - whether processed, partially processed or unprocessed - intended to be ingested by pet animals after placing on the market. Usually pet food is in the form of a coarse mix, kibbles / biscuits, or as a wet food in tins or pouches, but it also includes, for example, dog cakes and other similar treats. Std56 02/15

2 Manufacturing pet food The pet food industry is highly regulated (see 'Key legislation' below), and this legislation applies equally to what can be described as commercial pet food manufacture on an industrial scale and to smaller scale manufacturers, perhaps in a person's private home. Legislation on animal feed is at European Union (EU) level (rather than coming from the UK) and the overarching principle is that animal feed, including pet food, must be produced in hygienic conditions, and that the finished product is safe, is not harmful to animal or human health and is fully traceable. The main pieces of legislation to be considered in the manufacture of pet food, even in your own home, are described below. EU Regulation (EC) No 183/2005 laying down requirements for feed hygiene requires that feed safety and hygiene be considered at all stages of the production of pet food, wherever this may be carried out. The Regulation sets out the operating standards to which all pet food manufacturers must comply. The Regulation summarises the feed hygiene requirements in terms of: facilities and equipment personnel production quality control including Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP - feed safety management system) storage and transport record-keeping, including traceability complaints and product recall All pet food manufacturers must also comply with EU Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 on the placing on the market and use of feed. This legislation covers matters such as: safety and marketing requirements - special regard should be given to the species and type of pet you are manufacturing food for stringent labelling, presentation and packaging requirements, including analytical declarations manufacturer responsibilities substantiation of any claims, including nutritional claims prohibition on the misleading of purchasers prohibition on making medicinal claims

3 This Regulation also transposes EU provisions on undesirable substances and particular nutritional purposes - for example: the maximum levels of various contaminants allowable in pet food (for example, arsenic, lead, dioxins and certain pesticides) certain substances that must not be used in feed Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 on additives for use in animal nutrition contains provisions for the control of additives in pet food. These controls relate to the additives (including vitamins, colourants, flavourings, and binders) authorised for use in animal feed and covers matters such as: categorisation of feed additives authorisation of feed additives labelling and packaging of feed additives provisions relating to an EU register of additives EU Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 laying down health rules as regards animal by-products and derived products not intended for human consumption relates to animal by-products - for example, material of animal origin comprising those parts of animals that are either deemed surplus to human consumption or are not normally consumed by people in the UK, and derived from animals inspected and passed as fit for human consumption prior to slaughter. It may also include products of animal origin - for example, eggs, milk, butter, honey, etc. Animal materials or animal products of this nature, which are not intended for human consumption, are classified as 'animal by-products' under this Regulation (usually category 3 ABP). Such material must be free of any transmissible disease, which therefore excludes material from dying, diseased or disabled animals. Approval by APHA is required for pet food manufacturers using category 3 ABP. This includes premises manufacturing pet food in domestic houses whether using meat fit for human consumption or category 3 ABP. Information and guidance on the applicable legislation can be found on the Food Standard Agency website ( o).

4 Local authority registration or approval EU Regulation (EC) No 183/2005 laying down requirements for feed hygiene requires feed businesses to be approved or registered with their local authority, as appropriate (see how to apply for approval or registration on the Food Standards Agency website ( dance)). This applies to all pet food manufacturers regardless of scale. All pet food manufacturers need to apply for registration or approval with their local authority under EU Regulation (EC) No 183/2005 and must not operate without such registration / approval. Please see the attached form for application for registration / approval on page 7. EU Regulation (EC) No 183/2005 contains various conditions that pet food manufacturers have to comply with. The requirements of annex II (PDF 1.1MB) ( of the Regulation must be complied with in relation to all pet food manufacture. Registration with your local authority is free. If approval is required then a fee is payable. APHA approval for products incorporating products of animal origin If the manufacture of pet food, even in your own home, includes ingredients from products of animal origin and even if these products are fit for human consumption - for example, using ingredients bought direct from a supermarket - then APHA approval is required (in addition to local authority registration or approval). This arises from the fact that once the decision is made to use human foodstuffs containing products of animal origin in the manufacture of pet food, then this material becomes a category 3 animal by-product (ABP). APHA approval as a pet food plant is always required to handle such ABP. In order for such approval to be granted in, for example, a domestic home, strict separation of the pet food ingredients from food still intended for human consumption must be achieved at all stages of processing in order to ensure both human and animal health. Such separation may be achieved by having totally separate facilities - for

5 example, a dedicated kitchen, work area and storage area - or by strict time separation with a fully documented clean-down programme. Hazards need to be controlled by a documented HACCP plan supplemented by prerequisite programmes. A requirement of APHA approval is an ongoing microbiological testing regime for salmonella and enterobacteriaceae. This must be completed at a UKAS-accredited laboratory in accordance with ISO for ABP purposes. A list of compliant laboratories can be found on the UKAS website ( Further guidance on pet food manufacture containing ABP can be found on the GOV.UK website ( Labelling Pet food must be labelled with both the general mandatory labelling requirements and specific mandatory labelling requirements as required by EU Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 on the placing on the market and use of feed. Detailed information on the labelling requirements and labelling presentation of pet food can be found in 'The retail sale of pet food' ( Guidance on the manufacture of safe pet foods The European Commission has formally recognised the FEDIAF (Fédération Européenne de l'industrie des Aliments pour Animaux Familiers - also known as the European Pet Food Industry Federation) Guide to Good Practice for the Manufacture of Safe Pet Foods ( The main aim of this document is to provide guidance to ensure that pet food is fit and safe for the purpose of feeding pets, whilst at the same time meeting the relevant requirements of European legislation. The guide covers the production, storage and distribution of pet food manufactured in Europe as well as third country imports into the EU but should not be used as a replacement for the national regulatory requirements. Penalties Failure to comply with these requirements is a criminal offence. The maximum penalty on conviction is an unlimited fine and/or two years' imprisonment.
