Renew Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification
If your facility already is a certified participant in the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program, it may be time to renew certification. Look below to review the steps necessary to achieve recertification of your facility.
Step 1: AFIA will send the facility's designated Safe Feed/Safe Food contact a renewal notice and invoice for the registration and licensing fee.
For facilities due for the biennial audit, AFIA will send the renewal notice approximately three months prior to the expiration date of the current certificate. Upon receipt of the payment and application, AFIA will forward the facility its facility number and a list of Certification Bodies to contact.
Step 2: The Certification Body will request a copy of the following self-surveillance audit form (click here).

Submit a new self-surveillance audit form to the CB (click here).
Keep a copy of all forms in your Safe Feed/Safe Food binder for your records. AFIA will also send you new material if a change or addition is made to binder material.
Step 3: A biennial inspection will be scheduled by the Certification Body if required.
Step 4: The Certification Body issues a new certificate upon passing of inspection (if required), receipt of payment and receipt of updated self-surveillance audit form.
Step 5: Now that your facility has been recertified you are eligible to order Safe Feed/Safe Food merchandise. Order brochures, cotton ballcaps, round seals that cling to glass without leaving a sticky mess and magnetic signs that may be applied to trucks and other equipment. Please fill out this form and send it to AFIA at 2101 Wilson Blvd, Suite 916, Arlington, VA 22201 or fax it to (703) 524-1921.
