Animal Feed (AFPS)

daps UKAS Logo
  • UKAS accredited proficiency testing scheme
  • Chemical and microbiological analysis of animal feed products
  • The LGC Animal Feeds Proficiency Scheme (AFPS) is specifically designed to meet the needs of laboratories performing chemical or microbiological analysis of animal feeds.
  • Animal feed quality is highly regulated since many animals, or their products, will ultimately be converted into food for human consumption.
  • Major food safety crises have occurred as a result of the contamination of animal feed causing risks to animal and human health. The resulting recalls have caused significant financial damage as large quantities of product have to be destroyed; and considerable damage to the reputation of businesses involved. Participation in the LGC AFPS Proficiency Testing scheme can form part of a comprehensive quality system that seeks to promote high standards and avoid potential risks.
  • Scheme operates from January to December
