This course will take participants through all of the necessary steps to obtain marketing authorisation for a feed additive in the European Union.
The EU has transformed its food legislation in the last two decades, creating the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and adopting a harmonised approach to food safety ‘from farm to fork’. The Feed Additives Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003), which applies to all feed additives and pre-mixtures, establishes a common procedure across the EU for authorising animal feed additives and lays down rules for their placing on the market, labelling and use. Since the 2021, the new EU Transparency Regulation (EU) 2019/1381 has applied to all regulated products in the food chain, including feed additives. This means big changes to the way that food business operators/applicants write & submit their feed additive dossiers.
Obtaining marketing approval for a feed additive in the EU is complex and this practical and interactive two-day course will provide a comprehensive introduction to the entire regulatory dossier submission, taking participants through all the necessary steps to obtain marketing authorisation in line with the new EU regulation on transparency.
Presentations will cover the regulatory framework and data required to establish the characterisation, quality, safety and efficacy of the different types of feed additives. An important part of the programme will be devoted to working on case studies in the workshop sessions, which have been designed to help consolidate learning, and there will be ample time for discussion with our expert faculty. We will also focus on the Transparency Regulation and explain the new procedure for feed additive approvals.
