Transition period granted for cobalt feed additives
On 15.07.2023 the feed additive authorisations for numerous cobalt compounds were to expire. Only coated cobalt should continue to be available.
It seemed questionable whether coated cobalt could be used in cattle feed in the same way as the other cobalt variants. This concern was averted because, very briefly,
the other cobalt compounds were given a transition period, presumably until the renewals are successfully approved.
Changes in the register of feed additives
(through Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/1173 of 15 June 2023 withdrawing from the market certain
feed additives, amending Regulation (EC) No 1810/2005 and repealing Regulations (EC) No 1453/2004, (EC) No 2148/2004 and (EC) No 943/2005).
The new Regulation 2023/1173, will result in no less than 40 additives being removed from the register of feed additives. Some of these additives will only
be deleted for certain areas, either because no application for authorisation was submitted, or because the application was withdrawn or not renewed.
However the additives in the list are subject to transitional measures:
- Existing stocks of additives may continue to be marketed and used until 6 July 2024.
- Premixtures containing the additives on the list may continue to be marketed and used until 6 October 2024.
- Compound foods and raw materials produced with the additives or premixtures may continue to be marketed and used until 6 July 2025.
