The European Commission and the Member States have adopted the final guidelines for distinctions among feed materials, feed additives, biocidal products and veterinary medicinal products.


The guidelines, according to the European Union Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and Their Mixtures (FEFANA), will clarify the decision-making process when determining the proper regulatory classification status of any feed product. The new transparency will allow both operators and control authorities to "manage product classification in a fair and predictable way," according to FEFANA.
