COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2022/268

of 23 February 2022

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/898 as regards the name of the holder of the authorisation of a preparation of Bacillus licheniformis (ATCC 53757) and its protease (EC 3.4.21.19) as a feed additive and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/982 as regards the name of the holder of the authorisation of a preparation of benzoic acid, calcium formate and fumaric acid as a feed additive

(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 13(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 provides for the authorisation of additives for use in animal nutrition and for the grounds and procedures for granting such authorisation.

(2)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/898 of 8 June 2016 (2) authorised a preparation of Bacillus licheniformis (ATCC 53757) and its protease (EC 3.4.21.19) as a feed additive. The holder of the authorisation is Novus Europe SA/NV.

(3)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/982 of 11 July 2018 (3) authorised a preparation of benzoic acid, calcium formate and fumaric acid as a feed additive.

(4)

Novus Europe NV has submitted an application in accordance with Article 13(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, proposing to change the name of the holder of the authorisation as regards Implementing Regulations (EU) 2016/898 and (EU) No 2018/982.

(5)

The applicant claims that it changed its name from Novus Europe SA/NV to Novus Europe NV. The application was accompanied by the relevant supporting data.

(6)

The proposed change of the terms of the authorisations is purely administrative in nature and does not entail a fresh assessment of the feed additives concerned. The European Food and Safety Authority was informed of the application.

(7)

To allow the applicant to exploit its marketing rights under its new name, Novus Europe NV, it is necessary to change the terms of the authorisations.

(8)

Implementing Regulations (EU) 2016/898 and (EU) No 2018/982 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(9)

Since safety reasons do not require the immediate application of the amendments made by this Regulation to Implementing Regulations (EU) 2016/898 and (EU) No 2018/982, it is appropriate to provide for a transitional period, during which existing stocks of the feed additives concerned may be used up.

(10)

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:
