Abstract In the framework of the Feed Safety Platform Initiative, several computer tools have been developed to provide the dissemination of the results and the communication inside and outside the network. The Website ( gives to its visitors an overview of the feed safety issues (animal by-products, feed additives, banned additives, GMOs, veterinary drugs, botanical impurities, mycotoxins, heavy metals, dioxins) including aspects on legislation, analytical methods, available tools and publication libraries. It offers links to European and national projects as well as Community Reference Laboratories involved on those topics. In this website, the news and events are fed regularly by the web correspondents. An electronic newsletter, dedicated to people involved in the feed sector, is biannually published and dispatched. To provide a space where the researchers can communicate, share documents and work together on a feed safety issue, an Intranet has been created. Different tools and functions are available as Feed safety mailing lists, alert system and discussion boards. Sub-intranets allow to the project coordinators to manage their projects. The Feed safety staff is ready to collaborate with you, offering a complete platform with all the communication tools useful for the dissemination of your activities. We are open to receive your contribution to "feed" the feed safety platform.
