You will need to comply with these standards if you intend to manufacture animal feed, excluding feed for cats, dogs, guinea pigs, rodents, domestic aquarium fish and aviary birds. These standards contain requirements regarding:
- which hormones and antibiotics are not to be used in feed
- the maximum allowable contaminant levels of harmful substances (such as lead and mercury)
- the permitted levels of chemicals and additives
- labelling of animal feed products that are sold in quantities of 5kg or more.
