According to Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, feed additives for which no application for re-evaluation was submitted before the deadline of 8th November 2010, should be withdrawn from the market via the adoption of a regulation.
In recent years, four withdrawal regulations have been published:
2012: Regulation (EU) No 451/2012 for certain feed additives belonging to the functional group of silage additives
2013: Regulation (EU) No 230/2013 for certain feed additives belonging to the group of flavouring and appetising substances
2014: Regulation (EU) No 107/2014 for certain sources of cobalt
2017: Regulation (EU) No 2017/1145 for certain feed additives authorised pursuant to Council Directives 70/524/EEC and 82/471/EEC and repealing the obsolete provisions authorising those feed additives
Substances listed in the withdrawal regulations are no longer authorised feed additives and therefore cannot be placed on the market. If business operators see finally the need for those products to be marketed in EU, they must submit a new application for authorisation.
