New regulations for medicated feedingstuffs


New legislation designed to protect the public from residues by providing better defined controls over the medicating of animal feedingstuffs begins to come into force from July 1. The 1985 Medicated Animal Feeding Stuffs Regulations have already closed a loophole whereby a POM product could be incorporated into feed and the resulting medicated feed sold without veterinary supervision. The new controls will require registration of manufacturers of medicated feedingstuffs including on farm mixers and impose conditions on the incorporation of medicines which are not licensed for in feed use (veterinary specials).
