Feed material suppliers should take note that further to the publication of the first update of the Catalogue of Feed Materials on June 17, 2011 (Regulation (EC) No 575/2011), the owners of the website www.feedmaterialsregister.eu will remove from the Feed Materials Register all entries with names listed in this Catalogue.
Additionally, notifyers are asked to inform the owners should their entries be removed from the Register because they are listed in the Catalogue.
Changes to the content of the Register (modifications / withdrawals / additions) occur regularly on request of notifyers. For these reasons, Feed Business Operators are reminded that the content of the Register is permanently evolving. They are therefore invited to check regularly that the feed materials that they place on the market are listed by their proper name and description either on the Register of Feed Materials or the Catalogue of Feed Materials and, if not, to notify them to the Register
According to article 24(6) of the EU feed marketing Regulation (EC) No 767/2009, “the person who, for the first time, places on the market a feed material that is not listed in the
EU Catalogue of feed materials shall immediately notify its use to the representatives of the EU feed business sectors.” This provision entered into application on September 1,
2010. The EU legislator mandated the representatives of the EU feed business sectors to publish these notifications on a website in the form of a Register and to update this Register on a regular basis (www.feedmaterialsregister.eu). After almost one year of operation, more than 2,000 products have been notified to the Register, including products which have since then been submitted and approved for inclusion in the Catalogue of feed materials.
More information on the Register management is available at www.feedmaterialsregister.eu.
