Annex Maximum levels of undesirable substances in animal feed

Reference | Products intended for animal feed | mg/kg | Note |
---|---|---|---|

M16 | Feed materials of plant origin | 0.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Feed materials of plant origin: vegetable oils and their by-products. | 0.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Feed materials of mineral origin | 0.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Feed materials of animal origin: Animal fat, including milk fat and egg fat, | 1.5 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Feed materials of animal origin: Other land animal products including milk and milk products and eggs and egg products. | 0.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Feed materials of animal origin: Fish oil, | 5 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Feed materials of animal origin: Fish, other aquatic animals, and products derived thereof with the exception of fish oil, hydrolysed fish protein containing more than 20 % fat (43) and crustacea meal, | 1.25 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. Fresh fish and other aquatic animals directly delivered and used without intermediate processing for the production of feed for fur animals are not subject to the maximum levels, while maximum levels of 3,5 ng WHO-PCDD/F-TEQ/kg product and 6,5 ng WHO-PCDD/F-PCB-TEQ/kg product are applicable to fresh fish and 20,0 ng WHO-PCDD/F-PCB-TEQ/kg product is applicable to fish liver used for the direct feeding of pet animals, zoo and circus animals or used as feed material for the production of pet food. The products or processed animal proteins produced from these animals (fur animals, pet animals, zoo and circus animals) cannot enter the food chain and cannot be fed to farmed animals which are kept, fattened or bred for the production of food. |

M16 | Feed materials of animal origin: Hydrolysed fish protein containing more than 20 % fat; crustacea meal. | 1.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M22 | Feed additives belonging to the functional groups of binders and anti-caking agents. | 0.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. The maximum level is also applicable to the feed additives belonging to the functional groups of substances for the control of radionuclide contamination and substances for reduction of the contamination of feed by mycotoxinswhich are also belonging to the functional groups of binders and anti-caking agents. |

M16 | Feed additives belonging to the functional group of compounds of trace elements. | 1 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Premixtures | 1 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Compound feed | 0.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Compound feed for pet animals and fish, | 1.75 | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |

M16 | Compound feed for fur animals. | - | Upper-bound concentrations; upper-bound concentrations are calculated on the assumption that all values of the different congeners below the limit of quantification are equal to the limit of quantification. |
