The European Food Safety Authority concluded in its opinion of 6 September 2011 that, under the proposed conditions of use, dicopper chloride trihydroxide does not have an adverse effect on animal health, human health or the environment and that its use may be considered as an effective source of copper for all animal species. The Authority does not consider that there is a need for specific requirements of post-market monitoring.
The assessment of dicopper chloride trihydroxide shows that the conditions for authorisation, as provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, are satisfied. Accordingly, the use of this preparation should be authorised as specified in the Annex of the new Regulation (EU) Nº 269/2012 of 26 March 2012.
