Since further use of the additive ethoxyquin might cause a risk to human, animal health and the environment, the additive and feed containing it should be withdrawn from the market as soon as possible.

The European Food Safety Authority stated in its opinion of 21 October 2015 that the assessment of the particulars and documents submitted by the applicant makes it impossible to conclude on the safety of the additive ethoxyquin for any target animals, for consumers and for the environment

It has not been established that the additive does not have an adverse effect on animal health, human health or the environment when used under the proposed conditions. Accordingly the existing authorisation of the additive ethoxyquin therefore no longer meets the conditions set out by Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

It is possible that supplementary data concerning the safety of use and the efficacy of the additive ethoxyquin bring new elements that would allow a re-consideration of the assessment carried out for that additive.

In accordance with Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, the authorisation of the additive ethoxyquin should therefore be suspended, pending the submission and assessment of the supplementary data. The suspension measure should be reviewed after due assessment of those data by the Authority.

Since further use of the additive ethoxyquin might cause a risk to human, animal health and the environment, the additive and feed containing it should be withdrawn from the market as soon as possible. For practical reasons, however, a limited transitional period should be allowed for the withdrawal from the market of the products concerned in order to enable operators to comply properly with the withdrawal obligation.
