Webinar: Feed Additive Efficacy

Webinar: Feed Additive Efficacy
The regulatory framework and data required to establish the characterisation, quality, safety and efficacy of the different types of feed additives will be looked at during this webinar.


Date: On-demand - This is a recording of the live webinar which took place in August 2018.



This webinar is a quick, but comprehensive overview of the current status of feed additive efficacy, as evaluated by EFSA, as well as an indicator of future opportunities for EU-approved feed additives. The webinar covers the requirements for an EU feed additive efficacy data set, within the current EU/EFSA framework for authorisation of feed additives.

Learning objectives 

  • The EU regulatory framework – relevant legislation
  • Types of feed additives and acceptable claims
  • Data requirements – product characterization safety, quality and efficacy
  • Applicable guidelines and guidance documents (EC, EFSA and EURL)

Target audience

All target audiences are applicable, from beginners to experienced regulatory professionals, since the EFSA 2018 feed additive guidance document is new & enters into force on 1 September 2018. This TOPRA Webinar explains the background & legal framework of the new EFSA guidance. Due to the EU feed additive REFIT programme, currently underway, there are opportunities to influence future EU & EFSA approaches to the requirements to demonstrate feed additive efficacy and related permissible claims. The course may be of interest to CROs offering in vitro, ex vivo or in vivo testing facilities, as well as global stakeholders such as non-EU regulatory authorities.
