On the motion of the Rural Affairs Committee, the second reading of the Bill on Amendments to the Feedingstuffs Act and Associated Acts (777 SE), initiated by the Government, was concluded. The purpose of the Bill is to bring the requirements for the placing on the market and use of feed into conformity with the relevant European Union Regulation and to establish labelling requirements for different feeds. It also provides a regulation for exercising supervision over feed of non-animal origin which is imported and for which there may be an increased risk of contamination. For that purpose, an amendment has been made in the Bill according to which improved import control will be exercised over feed for which there may be an increased risk of contamination either at a border inspection post or at a place of exercise of supervision over feed imported. In addition, feed experts are included in the composition of the novel food committee formed on the basis of the Food Act because members of the novel food committee have to provide assessments on the safety of products produced of genetically modified organisms (GMO) and products containing GMOs or consisting thereof that are recommended for use as food and feed. The Bill was sent to the third reading.
