FSC36 Certification

sfsf logo

Third-party certifications for animal food safety can be awarded through one of four programs under the Safe Feed/Safe Food (SF/SF) certification program, with FSC36 being the standard program. FSC36 is our simple code that helps facilities prepare for compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act’s animal food rule and exceed regulatory requirements. It is a good starting point for companies looking to sharpen their employees’ understanding of the regulations with a program trusted by the Food and Drug Administration. You can minimize food safety risks and prepare for your next facility inspection, all while proving to your customers your commitment to animal food safety.
