Scientific Opinion


PHYZYME® XP 10000 TPT/L is a feed additive that contains 6‐phytase produced by a genetically modified strain of Schizosaccharomyces pombe. The applicant requested for the renewal of the authorisation for PHYZYME® XP 10000 TPT and L to be used as a feed additive for avian species for fattening/laying, weaned piglets, pigs for fattening and sows and for an extension of use to avian species reared for laying/breeding, suckling piglets and minor porcine species. To support the request or the renewal of the authorisation, the applicant provided evidence that the additive in the market complies with the conditions of the authorisation. According to the information provided by the applicant, no new evidence has been identified that would make the FEEDAP Panel reconsider the previous conclusions regarding the safety for the target species, consumer, user and environment. The application for renewal of the authorisation did not include a proposal for amending the conditions of use in those species for which an authorisation exists that would have an impact on the efficacy of the additive. Therefore, there was no need for assessing the efficacy of the additive in the context of the renewal of the authorisation. Regarding the new species/categories, the Panel concluded that the additive is safe and has a potential to be efficacious in avian species reared for laying/breeding at 250 FTU/kg feed and for suckling piglets and minor porcine species at 500 FTU/kg feed.
