COMMISSION DIRECTIVE of 19 April 1991 amending the Annexes to Council Directive 70/524/EEC concerning additives in feedingstuffs (91/249/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 70/524/EEC of 23 November 1970 concerning additives in feedingstuffs (1), as last amended by Commission Directive 91/248/EEC (2), and in particular Article 7 thereof,

Whereas Directive 70/524/EEC provides for regular amendment of the content of its Annexes to take account of advances in scientific and technical knowledge;

Whereas a new use of the trace element 'ferrous sulphate, monohydrate' has been successfully tested in certain Member States; whereas, on the basis of experience gained it appears that this new use can be authorized throughout the Community;

Whereas too high an addition of vitamin A in feedingstuffs can have undesirable effects on quality of production animals; whereas, given this fact, it appears necessary, while waiting for the results of certain studies, to introduce maximum levels to ensure upkeep and productivity of animals during the finishing period;

Whereas the use of various additives belonging to the groups of antibiotics and binders has been successfully tested in certain Member States; whereas it is appropriate to allow provisionally these new uses at national level until their authorization on a Community level;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Feedingstuffs,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

The Annexes to Directive 70/524/EEC are hereby amended as set out in the Annex hereto.

Article 2

Member States shall, by 30 November 1991 at the latest, bring into force the laws, regulations or administrative provisions necessary to comply with Article 1. They shall inform the Commission thereof.

When Member States adopt these measures, they shall contain a reference to this Directive or shall be accompanied by such reference on the occasion of their official publication. The methods of making such a reference shall be laid down by the Member States.

Article 3

This Directive is addressed to the Member States.
