Statement on the safety and efficacy of the product ‘Rosemary extract liquid of natural origin’ as a technological feed additive for dogs and cats
The additive rosemary extract liquid of natural origin is intended to be used as a technological additive (antioxidant) in feed for dogs and cats. The FEEDAP Panel assessed the data provided by the applicant in the technical dossier. During the course of the assessment, the need for additional information in order to be able to deliver an opinion on the safety and efficacy of this additive was identified and notified to the applicant. The information requested covered several aspects of the characterisation of the additive, the safety of the additive for the target species and its efficacy. The applicant has failed to provide the additional information even after several requests by EFSA. Therefore, considering the data provided in the original dossier and the absence of response from the applicant to the requests from EFSA, the FEEDAP Panel is not in a position to deliver an opinion on the safety and efficacy of the additive rosemary extract liquid of natural origin as a technological additive for dogs and cats.
