(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 470/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 May 2009 laying down Community procedures for the establishment of residue limits of pharmacologically active substances in foodstuffs of animal origin, repealing Council Regulation (EEC) No 2377/90 and amending Directive 2001/82/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 of the European Parliament and the Council (1), and in particular Article 14 in conjunction with Article 17 thereof,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Medicines Agency formulated by the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use,

Whereas:

(1)

The maximum residue limit (hereinafter ‘MRL’) for pharmacologically active substances intended for use in the Union in veterinary medicinal products for food-producing animals or in biocidal products used in animal husbandry is to be established in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 470/2009.

(2)

Pharmacologically active substances and their classification regarding MRLs in foodstuffs of animal origin are set out in the Annex to Commission Regulation (EU) No 37/2010 (2).

(3)

Lasalocid is currently included in Table 1 of the Annex to Regulation (EU) No 37/2010 as an allowed substance, for poultry species, applicable to muscle, skin and fat, liver, kidney and eggs, and for bovine species, applicable to muscle, fat, liver and kidney, excluding animals producing milk for human consumption.

(4)

An application for the amendment of the existing entry for lasalocid has been submitted to the European Medicines Agency.

(5)

Additional data on lasalocid was provided and assessed by the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use. As a result that Committee recommended the amendment of the current acceptable daily intake for lasalocid, as well as the amendment of the existing MRL for lasalocid in poultry.

(6)

In accordance with Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 470/2009 the European Medicines Agency is to consider using MRLs established for a pharmacologically active substance in a particular foodstuff for another foodstuff derived from the same species, or MRLs established for a pharmacologically active substance in one or more species for other species.

(7)

The Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use concluded that the extrapolation to other food producing species cannot be supported for this substance.

(8)

The entry for lasalocid in Table 1 of the Annex to Regulation (EU) No 37/2010 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(9)

It is appropriate to provide for a reasonable period of time for the stakeholders concerned to take measures that may be required to comply with the newly set MRL.

(10)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Veterinary Medicinal Products,
