Commission Regulation (EC) No 429/2008 of 25 April 2008 is the Regulation on detailed rules for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the preparation and the presentation of applications and the assessment and the authorisation of feed additives. The objective of this Regulation is to ensure the use of safe and good quality feedingstuff, to facilitate trade, and to protect human health, animal health, and the environment.
Annex II on general requirements to be satisfied by the dossier provided for in article 3 of the Regulation requires that studies shall be performed and documented according to appropriate quality standards (e.g. Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)). Where in vivo or in vitro studies are carried out outside the Community, the applicant shall demonstrate that the facilities concerned comply with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) principles of Good Laboratory Practice or ISO standards.
The EU receiving authority for Regulation (EC) No 429/2008 is the European Food and Safety Authority (EFSA).
