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”.
"To assist feed business operators in registering their feed materials as required, the EU organisations representing the European feed business sectors listed hereafter have developed a registration tool (link) that enables the publication and regular update of a “user-friendly” Register within the mandate of Regulation (EC) No 767/2009. Any notification submitted by other means (letter, email, fax, etc.) will not be accepted.
We invite feed business operators to read carefully the two following documents before starting notification:
- A Q&A addressing questions related to the legal provisions with recommendations: this is for guidance only (see disclaimer). Questions related to legal obligations must be submitted to the competent authorities and not to the representatives of the European feed business sectors.
- A guide to the notifying feed business operators addressing in particular issues related to the registration procedure. Any question regarding this guide and in general the practical aspects of the registration procedure can be communicated to us via the contact section.
