COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 96/66/EC of 14 October 1996 amending Council Directive 70/524/EEC concerning additives in feedingstuffs (Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 70/524/EEC of 23 November 1970 concerning additives in feedingstuffs (1), as last amended by Directive 96/51/EC (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 the Annexes have been consolidated by Commission Directive 91/248/EEC (3);

Whereas new uses for additives belonging to the group Coccidiostats and other medicinal substances have been successfully tested in certain Member States; whereas the new uses should be authorized provisionally at national level pending their approval at Community level;

Whereas the Chernobyl accident caused radioactive caesium fallout which contaminated forage in certain regions of northern Europe; whereas, in order to protect human and animal health and introduce preventive measures to combat pollution by radioactive caesium nuclides, a new group of additives should be established, namely 'radionuclide binders`; whereas a new additive belonging to this group which allows absorption of caesium nuclides by animals to be substantially reduced has been successfully tested in certain Member States; whereas this new additive should be authorized provisionally at national level pending its approval at Community level;

Whereas the investigation of various additives currently listed in Annex II and therefore capable of authorization at national level has not yet been completed; whereas, therefore, the period of authorization of these substances should be extended for a specific period;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
