More than 1200 authorisations for flavourings in farm animal feed and pet food are to be withdrawn following a Regulation adopted last week.

This legal act, published in the Official Journal, is part of the European Commission's effort to streamline the list of authorised additives used in feed - including flavouring substances, into a smaller state-of-the-art list of re-assessed products shown to be safe and effective.

This measure brings more transparency and certainty to operators and authorities alike. The Commission is undertaking a re-evaluation of all additives used in animal feed. Additives for which no applications for reauthorisation were submitted, such as the ones in this Regulation, are being withdrawn.

This does not prevent interested parties from submitting new applications for their products in the future. All applications must be accompanied by the data required to prove their safety for consumers, for the animals, for workers and for the environment. The data is assessed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
