Rendering Code of Practice
The voluntary Rendering Code of Practice was developed by NARA in conjunction with the rendering industry. It includes third-party audits, educational programs, and recommended operating practices. Guidelines promote compliance with FDA’s regulations to implement the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The Rendering COP is aligned with the Safe Feed/Safe Food Program of the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA).
