Schedule 1, paragraphs 9 and 18(1)(e)

SCHEDULE 9METHOD OF CALCULATING THE ENERGY VALUE OF COMPOUND FEEDS

The energy value of compound poultry, ruminant and pig feeds and feeding stuffs intended for particular nutritional purposes for cats and dogs shall be calculated inaccordance with the formulae set out below on the basis of the percentages of certain analytical components of the feed or food. After application of these formulae, the results shall be given to one decimal place.
Poultry feeds: megajoules (MJ) of metabolisable energy (ME), nitrogen corrected, per kilogramof compound feed.
MJ of ME/kg of feed = 0.1551 × % protein(44) + 0.3431 × %oil(45) + 0.1669 × % starch(46) + 0.1301 × % total sugar (expressed as sucrose)(47).
Ruminant feeds: megajoules (MJ) of metabolisable energy (ME) per kilogram of dry matter in the compound feed.
MJ of ME/kg of dry matter = 0.14 × % Neutral detergent Cellulase plus Gamanase Digestibility(48) + 0.25 × % oil(45).
Pig feeds: megajoules (MJ) of digestible energy (DE) per kilogram of dry matter in the compoundfeed.
MJ of DE/kg of dry matter = 17.47 + 0.079 × % protein(44) + 0.158 × % oil(45) − 0.331 × % ash(49) − 0.140 Neutral Detergent plus Amylase Fibre(48).
Feeding stuffs intended for particular nutritional purposes for cats and dogs: megajoules (MJ) of metabolisable energy (ME) per kilogram of compound dog or cat food.
(a)cat and dog foods with the exception of cat foods having a moisture content exceeding 14%:

MJ of ME/kg of food = 0.1464 × protein(44) + 0.3556 × % oils and fats(45) + 0.1464 × % nitrogen-free extract;

(b)cat foods having a moisture content exceeding 14%:

MJ of ME/kg of cat food = (0.1632 × % protein + 0.3222 × % oils and fats(45) + 0.1255 × % nitrogen-free extract) − 0.2092;

where in either case the percentage of nitrogen-free extract is calculated by subtracting from 100 the total of the percentages of moisture(50), ash(49), protein(44) oils and fats(45) and fibre(51).
N.B Where the results of analysis are to be given on a dry matter basis, this may be achieved by analysing either the dried material, or fresh material and correcting for themoisture content.

CHAPTER B

1.  Where there is more than one group of nutritional characteristics indicated in column 2 of Chapter A, denoted by “and/or”, for the same nutritional purpose, the feeding stuff may have either or both groups in order to fulfil the nutritional purpose specified in column 1. For each group the corresponding labelling declarations are given opposite in column 4.

2.  Where a group of additives is mentioned in column 2 or column 4 of Chapter A, the additive(s) used must be authorised in Council Directive 70/524/EEC(65) as corresponding to the specified essential characteristic.

3.  Where the source(s) of ingredients or of analytical constituents is (are) required in column 4 of Chapter A the manufacturer must make a specific declaration (i.e. specific name of the ingredient(s), animal species or part of the animal) allowing the evaluation of conformity of the feeding stuff with the corresponding essential nutritional characteristics.

4.  Where the declaration of a substance, also authorised as an additive, is required by column 4 of Chapter A and is accompanied by the expression “total”, the declared content must refer to, as appropriate, the quantity naturally present where none is added or, by derogation from Directive 70/524/EEC(65), the total quantity of the substances naturally present and the amount added as an additive.

5.  The declarations specified in column 4 of Chapter A which include the words “if added” are required where the ingredient or the additive has been incorporated or its content increased specifically to enable the achievement of the particular nutritional purpose.

6.  The declarations to be given in accordance with column 4 of Chapter A concerning analytical constituents and additives must be expressed in quantitative terms.

7.  The recommended period of use indicated in column 5 of Chapter A indicates a range within which the nutritional purpose should normally be achieved. Manufacturers may refer to more precise periods of use, within the permitted range.

8.  Where a feeding stuff is intended to meet more than one particular nutritional purpose, it must comply with the corresponding entries in Chapter A.

9.  In the case of a complementary feedingstuff intended for a particular nutritional purpose, guidance on the balance of the daily ration must be provided in the instructions for use.

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

1.  These Regulations, which apply to Great Britain and come into force on 30th June 1995, consolidate with amendments the Feeding Stuffs Regulations 1991 as amended, and implement the European Community directives listed at the end of this note.

2.  The Regulations apply to feeding stuffs for animals of the kinds specified in regulation 3 and for pet animals. Those feeding stuffs (with the exception of straight feeding stuffs intended for use as pet foods) are prescribed in regulation 4 for the purposes of sections 68(1) and 69(1) of the Agriculture Act 1970 (“the Act”), which require sellers of prescribed materials to give “statutory statements” as to the composition of those materials and information or instructions as to their storage, handling and use, and to mark them with that information. The contents of statutory statements and other declarations are prescribed by regulation 5 and Schedules 1, 6, 8 Part I and 9, and their form by regulation 6. Further provisions relating to statutory statements are contained in regulations 7, 8 and 11. Permitted limits of variation in mis-statements in statutory statements are prescribed (regulation 10 and Schedule 3).

3.  The Regulations—

(a)control the labelling or marking of pre-mixtures of additives (regulation 9 and Schedule 8 Part II);

(b)provide for the manner of packaging and sealing compound feeding stuffs, additives and pre-mixtures (regulation 12);

(c)provide for the meaning of names for the purposes of Section 70 of the Act (which creates an implied warranty that material described by a name to which a meaning has been assigned pursuant to that section accords with that meaning), (regulation 13(1) and Schedule 2);

(d)regulate the marketing and use of feeding stuffs containing additives and additives intended to be incorporated in feeding stuffs (regulation 14 and Schedule 4);

(e)restrict or prohibit the marketing and use of feeding stuffs containing certain undesirable substances and the marketing, supply, importation and mixing of ingredients containing such substances (regulation 15 and Schedule 5);

(f)restrict the marketing and use of certain protein sources and non-protein nitrogenous compounds in feeding stuffs (regulation 16 and Schedule 7);

(g)make special provision as to the iron content of milk replacer feeds (regulation 17);

(h)prohibit the marketing of compound feeding stuffs in which the level of ash insoluble in hydrochloric acid exceeds specified levels (regulation 18);

(i)provide inspectors appointed under section 67 of the Act with powers to inspect manufacturers' records relating to compound feeding stuffs (regulation 22).

4.  The Regulations modify section 66(1) of the Act so as to provide a new definition of “feeding stuff”; and modify section 66(2), which specifies the circumstances in which material is to be treated for the purposes of the Act as imported or sold for use as a feeding stuff or as used as a feeding stuff. They modify section 69 of the Act in its application to imported feeding stuffs. They also modify section 82 (which provides for defences to prosecutions brought under the Act) by applying it to additional sections of Part IV of the Act (regulations 20 and 21).

5.  In addition to minor and drafting amendments, the Regulations make changes in the previous law to give effect to the following Community legislation—

Council Directive 93/74/EEC (OJ No. L237, 22.9.93, p.23) on feeding stuffs intended for particular nutritional purposes;

Commission Directive 94/39/EC (OJ No. L207, 10.8.94, p.20) establishing a list of intended uses of animal feeding stuffs for particular nutritional purposes;

Commission Directive 94/41EC (OJ No. L209, 12.8.94, p.18) amending the Annexes to Council Directive 70/524/EEC (OJ No. L270, 14.12.70, p.1) (OJ/SE Vol. 18, p.4) concerning additives in feeding stuffs;

Commission Directive 95/9/EC (OJ No. L91, 22.4.95, p.35) amending Directive 94/39/EC (OJ No. L207, 10.8.94, p.20) establishing a list of uses of animal feeding stuffs intended for particular nutritional purposes;

Commission Directive 95/10/EC (OJ No. L91, 22.4.95, p.39) fixing the method of calculating the energy value of dog and cat food intended for particular nutritional purposes.

The principal changes are contained in—

(a)
regulation 3—in which the list of animals prescribed for the purposes of the definition of feeding stuff in section 66(1) of the Act is extended to include piglets and foals;

(b)
regulation 19—which regulates the marketing of feeding stuffs intended for particular nutritional purposes by reference to Schedule 10—in which are set out the conditions which must be satisfied if such feeding stuffs are to be marketed, including a requirement that the particular nutritional purpose in question be one of those specified in that Schedule;

(c)
Schedule 1—in paragraphs 17–19 and 21 of which labelling requirements are specified for feeding stuffs intended for particular nutritional purposes;

(d)
Schedule 9—in which an official method of calculating the energy value of feeding stuffs intended for particular nutritional purposes for cats and dogs is added. The method is referred to in paragraph 18(1)(e) of Schedule 1 and in Schedule 3 Part E.

6.  A compliance cost assessment relating to these Regulations has been placed in the libraries of both Houses of Parliament.
