One-off costs will be borne by feed additive manufacturers in relation to changes in information required on labels. Detailed figures are not available from the industry, but these are unlikely to be significant.
Recurring costs for businesses will relate mainly to authorisation or re-authorisation of feed additives. The additional cost of authorisation for new feed additives is estimated by the industry to be in the range £10,000 to £100,000 depending on the complexity of the dossier. It is not possible to provide estimates for the cost of re-authorisations as this is dependant on guidelines yet to be issued by the European Commission.
Costs to regulators will be negligible.
