In the EU, feed additives are products used in animal nutrition which are intentionally added to feed or water in to favourably affect the quality of feed and the quality of food from animal origin, or to improve the animals’ performance and health. Feed additives must undergo a pre-market safety assessment via a centralised before being placed on the EU market. The scientific safety assessment is carried out by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the authorisation of the additive is granted by the European Commission (EC).
Since March 2021, Regulation (EU) 2019/1381 on transparency has applied to all regulated products in the food chain. Now all studies used to support an application must be notified to EFSA prior to the study start, and some will require co-notification. Confidential data must be fully justified by the applicant, and a non-confidential version of the dossier will be made publicly available.
Join this webinar to get a perspective on the registration process of a feed additive in the EU and to understand the importance of getting the regulatory strategy right from the start. You will learn how the registration process works, how to avoid common mistakes, reduce costs and speed up time to market.
Duration: 30 min presentation + 10 min Q&A session.
