This proposal would prohibit the use of antibiotics as growth-promoting feed additives. The four remaining authorised antibiotics currently used as growth-promoters in feed would have to be phased out by January 2006. The proposal represents a major streamlining of the existing rules on the safety evaluation and marketing authorisation of feed additives. All new authorisations of feed additives would be granted for a ten-year period only. Companies marketing feed additives authorised under existing legislation would have to apply for re-evaluation and re-authorisation of their products.
