EFSA: No Extra Authorisation For Additives In Water

16 December 2010

EU - There is no need to assess separately the safety and efficacy of a feed additive administered via water if there is an existing authorisation for the product in feed, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) says.

EFSA asked the Panel on Additives and Products or Substances Used in Animal Feed (FEEDAP) to produce a statement on the assessment of safety and efficacy of feed additives when used in water.

In the view of the FEEDAP Panel, there is no need to separately assess the safety and efficacy of an additive administered via water when an application for its use in feed is submitted or an authorisation exists, provided that the exposure of the animals is essentially the same.

The FEEDAP Panel made some recommendations.
