NOT SURE IF YOUR PRODUCT QUALIFIES AS A FEED ADDITIVE OR WHICH CATEGORY TO APPLY FOR?

In order to protect human health, animal health and the environment, feed additives must undergo a pre-market safety assessment via a centralised procedure following Regulations (EC) Nº 1831/2003 and 429/2008 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).
