COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 1270/2009

of 21 December 2009

concerning the permanent authorisations of certain additives in feedingstuffs

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Directive 70/524/EEC of

23 November 1970 concerning additives in feedingstuffs

( 1

), and in particular Articles 3 and 9d (1) thereof,

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

( 2 ), and in particular Article 25 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 provides for the authorisation of additives for use in animal nutrition.

(2) Article 25 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 lays down transitional measures for applications for the author­isation of feed additives submitted in accordance with Directive 70/524/EEC before the date of application of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

(3) The applications for authorisation of the additives set out in the Annexes to this Regulation were submitted before the date of application of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

(4) Initial comments on those applications, as provided for in Article 4(4) of Directive 70/524/EEC, were forwarded to the Commission before the date of application of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. Those applications are therefore to continue to be treated in accordance with Article 4 of Directive 70/524/EEC.

(5) The use of the enzyme preparation of endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Trichoderma reesei (CBS 526,94) was provisionally authorised for piglets by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2374/1998

( 3

). It was authorised without a time limit for chickens for fattening by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2036/2005

( 4 ). New data were submitted in support of an application for authorisation without a time limit of that enzyme preparation for weaned piglets. The assessment shows that the conditions laid down in Article 3a of Directive 70/524/EEC for such authorisation are satisfied.

Accordingly, the use of that enzyme preparation, as specified in Annex I to this Regulation, should be authorised without a time limit.

(6) The use of the enzyme preparation of endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Aspergillus aculeatus (CBS 589,94), endo-1,4-beta-glucanase produced by Trichoderma long­ibrachiatum (CBS 592,94), alpha-amylase produced by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens (DSM 9553), bacillolysin produced by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens (DSM 9554) and endo-1,4-beta-xylanase produced by Trichoderma...
