Feed safety is further strengthened through the improvement of feed information brought about by a new regulation creating a new catalogue of feed materials.

The new catalogue enables operators to use more precise names/expressions for the feed they place on the market. This improves the labelling of feed with respect to transparency and traceability and thus strengthens feed safety.The regulation is the product of a public-private-sector cooperation. The private sector worked voluntarily on a ground-breaking update of the old list of feed materials, which contained less than 200 entries. The new catalogue contains descriptions of 64 qualifying transformation processes of feed materials (processes used to treat feed), instead of the 17 processes listed before, and almost 600 well-defined feed materials.

Furthermore, the new catalogue clarifies many borderline cases of products whose status has been unclear for decades – a situation causing disruptions to the internal market. Thus, the coverage of the feed materials listed in the new catalogue is significantly increased and simultaneously the information about their properties is improved. The Commission introduced the new approach of co-regulation and gave all interested feed chain partners the chance to participate in the updating of the EU Catalogue of feed materials. Thirty-eight (38) EU associations of the feed sector, often competing entities on the market, held many meetings to improve the catalogue and, in the end, they presented their joint proposal. In line with the co-regulation approach, the Commission checked the proposal, did some limited fine-tuning and presented it for a vote in the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCoFCAH) in November 2010.
