Following the BSE epidemic and several major incidences of dioxin contamination of feed, the materials used in feed to nourish animals have come under the same close scrutiny as any other segment of the food chain. In the European Union all permitted feed additives have been subjected to a re-evaluation of their safety and efficacy. Significant efforts have been invested for those additives which were listed without being documented extensively (e.g. additives used in pet food, food additives used in feed, flavouring agents).
We support manufactures of feed additives and companies involved in the value chain of these compounds by providing the regulatory experience required to secure the legal status of these products. saqual has expertise in the preparation and submission of dossiers for the FEEDAP panel as required by the new European legislation for the periodic re-evaluation of feed additives. We offer such services specifically for feed additives with a sensory, nutritive, zootechnical or technical functions.
Target bodies: European Union (Commission, EFSA, Standing Committee, Member states); Switzerland (BVET, Agroscope Posieux, ALP)
