ICCF publishes guidance document on Genotoxicity Testing

Document provides information necessary to conduct safety evaluations of feed ingredients.

The International Cooperation for Convergence of Technical Requirements for the Assessment of Feed Ingredients (ICCF) Steering Committee is pleased to announce that it has endorsed the guidance document on Genotoxicity Testing during a recent meeting.

During 2020, an Expert Working Group composed of dedicated regulatory authorities and industry experts from the founding ICCF members was created to establish recommended approaches for the evaluation of the genotoxic potential of feed ingredients. The draft document built on consensus of the experts was submitted for Public Consultation in December 2020. Comments from different stakeholders were received, assessed, and addressed, where applicable by the Expert Working Group, before finalizing the Guidance Document.

This document provides guidance to applicants by providing them with the information necessary to conduct safety evaluations of feed ingredients. It provides an approach on how tests should be organised, as well as a description of the tests themselves. The guidance document builds on existing international guidance documents.
