A Threat to the Feed Machinery Manufacturing
Industry Worldwide
ISO/TC 293 – Proposed Standards for Feed Machinery Equipment
The US Coalition of Feed Machinery Manufacturers For Fair Trade encourages fair trade and accepted business practices that allows manufactures to compete and to produce high quality innovative, safe and environmentally sound feed machinery equipment. A competitive atmosphere governed by fair trade and accepted business will enable feed machinery manufactures to provide global feed producers with the equipment critical to continue to meet the needs of feed, nutrition and health
demands in a sustainable healthy manner.
The US Coalition of Feed Machinery Manufacturers for Fair Trade is in agreement regarding the importance of safety, quality and other related items proposed in ISO TC/293.. However, the coalition unanimously did not support this initiative when it was pushed forward by a single company in China, Muyang/Famsun, through ISO and our concerns were expressed to ANSI, along with those from AFIA and others, in initial opposition to the proposal to form a new ISO Technical Committee. As sufficient support was received from various other countries around the globe, ISO/TC 293 was approved. At the present time, each of our groups are participating in the ISO/TC 293’s US Technical Advisory Group to insure that the interests of US companies are properly represented. As sufficient support was received from various other countries around the globe, ISO/TC 293 was approved. However we want to be clear – the proposed standards are a grave threat to the industry and if implemented would in reality undermine innovation, competition, quality, and the environment. We want to communicate to the feed industry at large that we did not support the proposal for the following reasons:
