Summary

The European Commission has carried out an Evaluation of the Feed Additives Regulation. This Regulation (1831/2003) establishes the EU procedure for authorising feed additives, and lays down rules for placing them on the market and for their labelling and use. Only authorised additives may be placed on the market and used. The Regulation also imposed an EU-wide ban from 2006 on the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in feed. As of 5 April 2023, the EU Register of Feed Additives is now available online.
