Company lists Animal by-products

All operators active at any stage of the generation, transport, handling, processing, storage, placing on the market, distribution, use or disposal of animal by-products (ABP) are registered or approved by the competent authorities. On this page, the Belgian lists of ABP operators and a link to the lists of other Member States can be found. Moreover, in the context of the ban on using animal proteins in the feed of farmed animals (the “feed ban”), certain operators need to be listed. These lists include the producers of raw materials for rendering plants, producing and compound feed plants using certain animal derived feed materials.
