EFSA publish guidance on renewal of authorisations

Under EU rules, authorisations for feed additives must be renewed every ten years. EFSA has published guidance that outlines the information that applicants need to include in their dossiers, in line with relevant EU regulation. Under EU rules, authorisations for feed additives must be renewed every ten years.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) asked the Panel on Additives and Products or Substances used in Animal Feed (FEEDAP) to produce a guidance document to help the applicants in the preparation and submission of technical dossiers for the renewal of the authorisation of additives for use in animal nutrition.

This guidance document is intended to assist the applicant in the preparation and the presentation of an application, as foreseen in Article 7.6 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, for the renewal of the authorisation of additives for use in animal nutrition. It follows the structure and definitions of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 and its implementing rules (Regulation (EC) No 429/2008).

This guidance also takes into consideration comments that were submitted by stakeholders during a public consultation. The first applications will be sent to EFSA in 2015.
