Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 on the placing on the market and use of feed states in article 24(6): “the person who, for the first time, places on the market a feed material that is not listed in the Catalogue shall immediately notify its use to the representatives of the European feed business sectors referred to in Article 26(1). The representatives of the European feed business sectors shall publish a Register of such notifications on the Internet and update the Register on a regular basis”.
. 4 October 2019
The new online feed materials register is now operational. The interface with users has been improved significantly, in particular with export functions and access to the list of products which have been withdrawn from the register for legal reasons. The most important changes however concern the notification of new feed materials with several check steps to encourage notifying companies to verify against different parameters whether their notification is suitable and needed. The general principle remains however the same: the notifications are made upon the entire responsibility of the notifying company and the presence of a product on the feed materials register cannot be considered as an assurance of its feed material status. Among other significant developments, we can emphasise i) the multilingual notifications that are facilitated, the entry language being English, i) the obligation to provide information on the placer on the market on behalf of whom the notification is performed, and the access granted to national and EU authorities to the name of the company placing on the market and of the notifying company if different. This should facilitate the task of national authorities to verify, if relevant, the actual legal status of a product notified by a company.
. 23 June 2017 : The third update of the EU Catalogue of feed material was published in the Official Journal od the Union (Regulation (EU) 2017/1017). All new entries in the catalogue will be withdrawn from the present register without prenotification to applicants in January 2018, where the new Catalogue will be fully enforced.
