FEFANA assists in regulation of EU feed supplements
EC requests submission of dossiers to allow product permanence
The European Union (EU) Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and their Mixtures (FEFANA) is working with members to complete dossiers on feed products to ensure their permanence on the EU market.
FEFANA set up a task force in 2005 calling for the regulation of the use of certain micronutrients and feed supplements that have been on the market for years under multiple member states and regulatory conditions. In response to this task force, the European Commission (EC) announced a regulation stipulating that such products could only be placed permanently on the market if they fulfill the conditions of a particular nutritional purpose. The EC has requested dossiers on the products to help determine their status.
To assist with the new regulation, FEFANA is helping members complete the dossiers. The first due date was set at Sept. 1, 2010.
