Preparations of a kind used in animal feeding (HS code(s): 2309)
Draft Commission Implementing Regulation concerning the authorisation of gentian tincture from Gentiana lutea L. as a feed additive for certain animal species (Text with EEA relevance). Language(s): English. Number of pages: 6
The draft act concerns the authorisation as "flavouring compound" of a tincture from the plant Gentiana Lutea L. within the scope of the European Union legislation on feed additives, i.e. Regulation (EC) No. 1831/2003. The measure aims at authorising this additive for all species, but only for categories of animals intended for fattening, and to withdraw the placing on the market of the additive for the rest of the animals. It is proposed to provide transitional periods for the different types of feeds: 12 months for existing stocks of the additive, 15 months for stocks of premixtures produced with the additives mentioned before and 24 months for compound feed produced with the feed additives and premixtures mentioned before.
