EFSA has initiated the public consultation phase in relation to a series of guidance documents supporting the safety assessment of feed additives.

One publication​ relates to the evaluation of the safety of feed additives for consumers.

The report specifies what kind of information and data applicants need to include in their dossiers to allow the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to review the safety of a feed additive for the consumer of animal products.

EFSA said interested parties have until 21 July 2017 to submit written comments.

Identity, characterization...

The second consultation document is focused on the identity, characterization and conditions of use of feed additives.

The Parma-based risk assessor said it is intended to assist applicants in the preparation and presentation of an application for authorization of a feed additive. 

The deadline for feedback on that guidance​ is 7 July 2017.  

The call for comment today follows the release of another document for stakeholder review back in April, when the Authority launched its draft guidance​ for consultation in relation to the assessment of the safety of feed additives for target species.

The deadline for feedback submission on that publication is fast approaching – all comments must be in by next Wednesday, 31 May 2017.
