FeedSafe® Panel

About The FeedSafe® Panel

The FeedSafe® Panel’s role is to make decisions regarding producer and auditor issues of non-compliance to FeedSafe® Policy and Standards and the integrity of FeedSafe® as a recognised program of high quality that adds value to manufacturers.

The Panel gives manufacturers, auditors and The FeedSafe® Management Team a place to go when they have concerns about audit outcomes, certification, FeedSafe® policies and other FeedSafe® related issues of concern. The Panel does this by directing an appeals, incident investigation and review process with administrative support provided by The FeedSafe® Management Team. The Panel’s decisions are final and independent of The FeedSafe® Management Team.

 

The Panel will:

  • routinely review the program, standards and policies and make recommendations for improvements for industry consideration.

  • determines the course of action where incidences of misconduct, non-performance of duty or conflicts of interest are alleged, or where other unidentified events of a critical nature occur.

  • makes decisions on incidences and situations that are outside the scope of The FeedSafe® Management Team and when decisions need to be at arm’s length to The FeedSafe® Management Team.

 

The Panel consists of six or seven specialists:

  • Two representatives from government either representing a north-south split or east-west split;

  • An independent specialist auditor (preferably with an intensive farming background);

  • One or two independent manufacturers (but not an SFMCA producer elected Federal Council Director);

  • A representative nominated by the SFMCA Federal Council, who serves as Chair; AND

  • An individual from the supply chain (e.g. a customer representative).

 

Panel members serve a three or two year term with options for continued service where they are available and invited by the SFMCA Federal Council.   When a vacancy opens, The FeedSafe® Management Team, under the direction of the SFMCA Federal Council calls for applications from across industry to fill the specific role vacated.  Applications and resumes are received, interviews conducted and a suitable candidate nominated by a selection committee to the SFMCA Federal Council for approval.
