Market withdrawal of feed additives
With the entry into force of the Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2021/758 of 7 May 2021 on the status of certain products as feed additives, a large number of feed additives will be withdrawn from the market.
This concerns, among others, riboflavin, silage additives, colourants, binders such as bentonite-montmorillonite as well as various flavouring substances, which are withdrawn for all animal species. Furthermore, certain additives belonging to Trace elements, Acidity regulators, colourants, flavouring substances and amino acids, are withdrawn for certain species or animal categories.
Stocks of these feed additives may only be placed on the market and used until 30 May 2022. Premixtures may be placed on the market and used until 30 August 2022, compound feed and feed materials made from these feed additives or premixtures until 30 May 2023.
In addition to the withdrawal of feed additives, the status of certain products changes that were previously listed in both the EU Register of Feed Additives and the Catalogue of Feed Materials.
After a re-evaluation, the European Commission came to the conclusion that the products sodium citrate, potassium citrate, sorbitol, mannitol and calcium hydroxide are feed additives. These additives - as well as feed produced with these additives - may still be placed on the market until 30 May 2028.
Furthermore, the products xylitol, ammonium lactate and ammonium acetate are classified as feed additives, which were previously listed in the Catalogue of Feed Materials according to Regulation (EU) No 68/2013. These additives may also be placed on the market until 30 May 2028.
Finally, the Regulation also contains in Annex II a list of products that are not considered feed additives, including calcium oxide and various orthophosphates.
