    Implications on pastus+ audits

    In order to meet the requirements for containing the pandemic as best as possible, AMA-Marketing takes the topic of inspections and the associated hygiene measures to be taken very seriously.

    It is therefore possible under the current circumstances, that documents, which are normally viewed by the auditor during the on-site audit, are checked in the form of a remote audit. A company visit will be rescheduled within three months after the remote audit. For this, the auditors were requested by AMA-Marketing to comply with all necessary hygiene measures.

    If pastus+ audits cannot be carried out under the current circumstances, please contact us!

    pastus+ Gate-Keeper-Regulation

    New annex to the pastus+ guidelines

    The Annex 2 to the pastus+ guidelines „Requirements for the purchase of non-certified feed (Gate-Keeper-Regulation)“ comes into force with March 2020 instead of the “sampling for release” (in German Freiprobung).


    The Annex 2 is valid for the AMA-Feedstuff Guidelines pastus+ as well as for the pastus+ Regulation for Small Quantities.


    The requirements have to be met, if feed or former foodstuff are purchased from companies, who are not registered in the pastus+ system.



    AMA-Feed Monitoring pastus+

    New annex to the pastus+ guidelines

    The "AMA-Feed Monitoring pastus+" will take effect in January 2020 instead of the pastus+ sampling plans.

    The previous appendices 1 to 4 of the AMA-Feedstuff Guideline pastus+ as well as annex 1 of the pastus+ Regulation for Small Quantities will be replaced by the new monitoring.

    Labelling of feed

    Note the differences

    Compound feed that has been produced according to the requirements of the pastus+ system is labelled with "pastus+ AMA-Gütesiegel-tauglich" in accordance with the relevant product. In contrast, feed materials are labelled with "pastus+".

    The symbols and icons are available on request from your assigned point of contact: futtermittel(at)

    Pastus+ folder and poster

    Advertising for feed business operators

    In order to strengthen the importance of feed of high quality and safety, AMA-Marketing provides information on the pastus+ quality assurance system for distribution to feed customers.

    The info-folder should also increase awareness of the link between the AMA-Quality Seal and the pastus+ quality assurance system at AMA-Quality Seal farmers.

    We are happy to send you info-folders and A2 posters on request.

    International Database Transport for Feed

    Requirements for cleaning regimes

    EU-catalogue of feed materials and German Positive List

    In the pastus+ system, only feed listed in Regulation (EU) No. 2017/1017 catalogue of feed materials may be used. In addition, the use of feed listed in the German Positive List (Deutsche Positivliste) is also permitted. Furthermore, for the labelling of feed with "pastus+ AMA-Gütesiegel-tauglich", the negative list of AMA-Marketing must be complied with.
