COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/733

of 5 May 2021

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) No 887/2011 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/961 as regards the name of the holder of the authorisation of Enterococcus faecium CECT 4515 as a feed additive and amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1395 as regards the name of the holder of the authorisation of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CECT 5940 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)

Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH 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 Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 887/2011 (2), Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/961 (3) and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1395 (4).

(3)

The applicant claims that Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH has changed their name to Evonik Operations GmbH. The application was accompanied by the relevant supporting data.

(4)

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

(5)

To allow the applicant to exploit its marketing rights under the name of Evonik Operations GmbH it is necessary to change the terms of the authorisation.

(6)

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 887/2011, Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/961 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1395 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

Since safety reasons do not require the immediate application of the amendment made by this Regulation to Implementing Regulation (EU) No 887/2011, Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/961 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1395, it is appropriate to provide for a transitional period during which existing stocks may be used up.

(8)

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:
