COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/1090

of 31 July 2018

concerning the authorisation of a preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase and endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Komagataella pastoris (CBS 25376) and Komagataella pastoris (CBS 26469) as a feed additive for chickens for fattening, chickens reared for laying, turkeys for fattening, all avian species reared for laying or for breeding purposes, weaned piglets and minor porcine species (weaned) (holder of the authorisation Kaesler Nutrition GmbH)

(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)

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)

In accordance with Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 an application was submitted for the authorisation of a preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase and endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Komagataella pastoris (CBS 25376) and Komagataella pastoris (CBS 26469). That application was accompanied by the particulars and documents required under Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

(3)

The application concerns the authorisation of the preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase and endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Komagataella pastoris (CBS 25376) and Komagataella pastoris (CBS 26469) as a feed additive for chickens for fattening, chickens reared for laying, turkeys for fattening, all avian species reared for laying or for breeding purposes, weaned piglets and all porcine species (weaned) to be classified in the additive category ‘zootechnical additives’.

(4)

The European Food Safety Authority (‘the Authority’) concluded in its opinion of 30 November 2017 (2) that, under the proposed conditions of use, the preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase and endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Komagataella pastoris (CBS 25376) and Komagataella pastoris (CBS 26469) does not have an adverse effect on animal health, human health or the environment. It was concluded that the additive has a potential to improve zootechnical parameters in chickens for fattening, turkeys for fattening, and weaned piglets. This conclusion can be extended to chickens reared for laying and turkeys reared for breeding. The Authority also concluded that the effects of the additive on turkeys for fattening and on weaned piglets can be extrapolated respectively to all avian species up to the reared for laying and to weaned piglets of all porcine species. The Authority did not consider that there is a need for specific requirements of post-market monitoring. It also verified the report on the method of analysis of the feed additive in feed submitted by the Reference Laboratory set up by Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

(5)

The assessment of the preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase and endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Komagataella pastoris (CBS 25376) and Komagataella pastoris (CBS 26469) shows that the conditions for authorisation, as provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, are satisfied. Accordingly, the use of that preparation should be authorised as specified in the Annex to this Regulation.

(6)

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

The preparation specified in the Annex, belonging to the additive category ‘zootechnical additives’ and to the functional group ‘digestibility enhancers’, is authorised as an additive in animal nutrition, subject to the conditions laid down in that Annex.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth 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, 31 July 2018.
