To support its feed additive guidance provision, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is putting an additional literature search out to tender.

Last week, we reported​ on how the Authority was seeking similar external support to help it collate data for a scientific opinion on risk associated with the presence of OTA and bromine in feed. 

This time out, it is looking for experts in systematic literature reviews, chemistry/biochemistry, animal nutrition, animal physiology, immunology, animal welfare, or environmental science to carry out a literature search in relation to feed additives that have a positive impact on the environment, as well as those that can function as physiological condition stabilizers.

Referencing Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, which established groups of feed additives with beneficial effects on the environment and physiological condition stabilizers, the Parma-based risk assessor outlined how it is looking for available, up-to-date scientific information about such candidate substances, their mode of action and valid end points.

Such data, said EFSA, would help it provide guidance on the assessment of the efficacy of both types of feed additives. 

The closing date for receipt of tender applications​ if February 25, 2022.
