Revision of feed additive application guidelines
In the frame of the authorisation of feed additives, Regulation (EC) No 429/2008 regarding the preparation and the presentation of applications and the assessment and the authorisation of feed additives – herewith referred to as ‘the guidelines’ – represents the core document to be consulted by applicants when preparing their technical dossier for application for authorisation of a feed additive in the EU. It should be a key document for reference to ensure transparent and predictable authorisation of feed additives.
The main objective for our industry is to ensure improved transparency and a level platform across feed businesses. Risk assessment should be as predictable as possible and innovation should also be included as part of the guidelines. This requires a guideline that clearly defines the content of the dossiers, the information needed for the assessment and the data that can be waived upon sound justification by the applicant.
