SPILLERS NOPS Statement
SPILLERS strongly believe that a positive post race or competition dope test is a disaster, not only for the trainer or rider concerned, but also for the sport, and for any company whose products might be found to contain a prohibited substance.
We operate to high internal and external quality standards in the design and manufacture of all our products. Manufacturing takes place in our own licensed premises, using quality assured ingredients under strictly controlled production conditions, and we conform to the requirements of EU and UK legislation governing the manufacture of animal feeding stuffs. In addition, our products do not contain any form of medication.
SPILLERS is accredited to the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA), Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) Code.
The BETA UFAS NOPS Code requires us to evaluate the risk of a NOPS contamination during every step of the sourcing, storage, transport and manufacturing processes of our products, and the ensure that our quality management systems are in line with the risks identified.
Conforming to the new Code allows us to use the BETA UFAS NOPS logo on our products and literature to provide reassurance to owners and trainers of the stringent quality management procedures that we undertake during every step of the manufacturing process for each product.
The Code has been endorsed by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and the National Trainers Federation (NTF) with further endorsement from the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) currently being sought.
Finally we continue to work via BETA with sporting and government regulatory bodies to ensure that appropriate, workable measures are in place to reduce the risk of prohibited substances being present in equine feedingstuffs.
