FIAS covers the assurance of all fertilisers intended for agriculture, horticulture, forestry, amenity and any other such commercial use. It does not apply to fertilisers packaged for home garden use. The issues and the risks vary according to the type of fertiliser and it is for this reason that the entire scheme has adopted a “Risk Assessment” approach to achieving the necessary level of assurance.
The Round Table for Responsible Soy (RTRS) has developed a joint module with FEMAS to provide chain of custody certification for Soy products grown under RTRS certification.

HGCA's Grain storage guide was first published in 1999 and has become a key reference for most assurance schemes. This third edition of the guide is the output of a five-year Defra and industry-funded LINK research project to review the previous guide and ensure the recommendations remain robust.
This guidance is produced as an adjunct to the Control Regulation to clarify key points for use of oils and fats in farm animal feed.
