(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)

In accordance with Council Directive 70/524/EEC (2) monensin sodium and narasin, were authorised as feed additives by, respectively, Commission Regulations (EC) No 1356/2004 (3) and (EC) No 1464/2004 (4).

(2)

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, endo-1,4-beta-mannanase and diclazuril were authorised as feed additives by, respectively, Commission Regulations (EC) No 786/2007 (5), (EC) No 971/2008 (6), (EU) No 1118/2010 (7), (EU) No 169/2011 (8) and Commission Implementing Regulations (EU) No 888/2011 (9) and (EU) No 667/2013 (10).

(3)

The holder of authorisation, Eli Lilly and Company Ltd, 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 for the feed additives concerned.

(4)

The holder of authorisation claims that, with effect from 30 March 2018, Elanco GmbH, a division of Eli Lilly and Company Ltd owns the marketing rights for the additives concerned. The holder of authorisation has submitted relevant data supporting its request.

(5)

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

(6)

To allow Elanco GmbH to exploit its marketing rights it is necessary to change the terms of the authorisations concerned.

(7)

Regulations (EC) No 1356/2004, (EC) No 1464/2004, (EC) No 786/2007, (EC) No 971/2008, (EU) No 1118/2010, (EU) No 169/2011 and Implementing Regulations (EU) No 888/2011 and (EU) No 667/2013, should, therefore, be amended accordingly.

(8)

Since safety reasons do not require the immediate application of the amendments made by this Regulation, it is appropriate to allow a transitional period during which existing stocks may be used up.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,
