Iceland – Animal by-products – ABP


Matvælastofnun would like to point out to producers the importance of separating food on the one hand and animal by-products – ABP on the other, and that in all cases a business document must be included when ABP is delivered from an establishment. Particular attention is drawn to the fact that containers and vessels must be marked as ABP and specify the risk category, and it is not permitted to use the same container or vessel for food that has been used for ABP. Food companies are not allowed to receive ABP unless they have a license and completely separate production lines where cross-contamination is not possible.

You can access the business document at the following URL:
