Background

The Feed Registration Backlog Project (FRBP) was conducted from November 2015 until 31 March 2016 in an attempt to clear the backlog of new farm feed registrations. More than 800 applications were assessed in order to return the service delivery time frame back to a 4-month period. The project was funded and co-ordinated by AFMA and in partnership with the Agricultural Inputs Control (AIC) division within DAFF.

Results from the project highlighted some serious concerns about the quality of applications submitted and concluded that 90% of applications did not meet the legal requirements for premarket approval. This was identified as one of the biggest contributors to the delay in the registration approval process – placing an unnecessary burden on the already limited capacity at AIC.

The Workshop – what to expect?

The Feed Registration Workshop is therefore aimed at providing valuable feedback to all Act 36 registration holders on how to successfully complete & submit a farm feed registration application in order to obtain a V-number in the shortest possible time!

The Workshop will focus on the common errors made when submitting a registration application and will cover all types of applications. Delegates will have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in completing the application forms and the format of the day will be in true workshop style – putting pen to paper!

A brand new consolidated application form – combining the current ten forms into ONE – will also be introduced by Act 36 and workshopped on the day! This should simplify the application process tremendously and delegates will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the new improved process and forms.
