COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2024/1839

of 3 July 2024

correcting Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846 by deleting Schinopsis lorentzii (Griseb.) Engl. as a source of the feed additive red quebracho extract

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 September 2003 on additives for use in animal nutrition (1), and in particular Article 9(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The substances red quebracho extract from Schinopsis balansae Engl. or Schinopsis lorentzii (Griseb.) Engl. were authorised as feed additives for all animal species by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846 (2) for 10 years.

(2)

However, the substance red quebracho extract from Schinopsis lorentzii (Griseb.) Engl. was erroneously included in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846 despite not being included in the application for authorisation.

(3)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846 should therefore be corrected accordingly. For the sake of clarity, it is appropriate to replace the whole Annex to that Implementing Regulation.

(4)

To prevent the placing of the feed additive red quebracho extract from Schinopsis lorentzii (Griseb.) Engl. on the market, which could result from the error in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846, this Regulation should enter into force as a matter of urgency.

(5)

To preserve the legitimate expectations of the feed business operators created by the erroneous authorisation of the feed additive red quebracho extract from Schinopsis lorentzii (Griseb.) Engl., a short transitional period should be provided to allow those operators to adapt to the correction introduced by this Regulation.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Correction to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846 is corrected as follows:

(1)

the title is replaced by the following:

‘Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/2846 of 20 December 2023 concerning the authorisation of red quebracho extract from Schinopsis balansae Engl. as a feed additive for all animal species’;

(2)

the Annex is replaced by the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

Transitional measures

The feed additive red quebracho extract from Schinopsis lorentzii (Griseb.) Engl. and premixtures, compound feed and feed materials containing it, which are produced and labelled before 5 August 2024 in accordance with the rules applicable before 5 July 2024 may continue to be placed on the market and used until 5 January 2025.

Article 3

Entry into force

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 3 July 2024.

For the Commission

The President

1.

The additive shall be incorporated into the feed in the form of a premixture.

2.

In the directions for use of the additive and premixtures, the storage conditions and stability to heat treatment shall be indicated.

3.

Mixture of red quebracho extract with other botanical additives is permitted provided that the amounts of condensed tannins in feed materials and compound feed are lower than the one resulting from the use of a single additive at the maximum or recommended level for the species or animal category.

4.

For users of the additive and premixtures, feed business operators shall establish operational procedures and organisational measures to address the potential risks resulting from their use. Where those risks cannot be eliminated by such procedures and measures, the additive and premixtures shall be used with personal breathing, eye and skin protective equipment.
