The UFAS Beta NOPS Code

Reducing the Risk of Disqualification from Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances in Feed.

The British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) has introduced two assurance schemes designed to reduce the risk of naturally occurring prohibited substances (NOPS) in equine feeds.

The Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) Code is designed for manufacturers of compound feeds, and the BETA NOPS Code is a sister scheme designed for raw material and straights providers. Both UFAS and BETA together with the NOPS components are administered by the AIC (Agricultural Industries Confederation). Companies are audited through the AIC schemes as well as being bound by additional requirements run by BETA as part of the BETA UFAS NOPS code.

You can read more about the UFAS and BETA NOPS Code, and see all participating companies here.
