COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2023/585

of 15 March 2023

correcting Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1452 concerning the authorisation of 3-ethylcyclopentan-1,2-dione, 4-hydroxy-2,5-dimethylfuran-3(2H)-one, 4,5-dihydro-2-methylfuran-3(2H)-one, eugenol, 1-methoxy-4-(prop-1(trans)-enyl)benzene, α-pentylcinnamaldehyde, α-hexylcinnamaldehyde and 2-acetylpyridine as feed additives for certain animal species

(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 use of eugenol and 1-methoxy-4-(prop-1(trans)-enyl)benzene as feed additives was authorised for certain animal species by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1452 (2) for a 10-year period.

(2)

In the Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1452, the indication regarding the method of production for the two above-mentioned additives erroneously refers only to the production by chemical synthesis, while in the case of eugenol it should also refer to the extraction from cloves or cloves oil and in the case of 1-methoxy-4-(prop-1(trans)-enyl)benzene to the extraction from pine oil.

(3)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1452 should therefore be corrected accordingly.

(4)

In the interest of preventing disruptions to the placing of the feed additives concerned on the market due to the errors in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1452, this Regulation should enter into force as a matter of urgency.

(5)

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

1.   In the Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1452, as regards the entry for the additive Eugenol identified as ‘2b04003’, in the column ‘Composition, chemical formula, description, analytical method’, the wording ‘Produced by chemical synthesis’ is replaced by the following: ‘Produced by chemical synthesis or by the extraction from cloves or cloves oil’.

2.   In the Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1452, as regards the entry for the additive 1-Methoxy4-(prop-1(trans)-enyl)benzene identified as ‘2b04010’, in the column ‘Composition, chemical formula, description, analytical method’, the wording ‘Produced by chemical synthesis’ is replaced by the following: ‘Produced by chemical synthesis or by the extraction from pine oil’.

Article 2

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, 15 March 2023.

For the Commission

The President

Ursula VON DER LEYEN
