Statement on the safety and efficacy of lignosulphonate of magnesium (Caimabond) for all animal species
The additive lignosulphonate of magnesium is intended to be used as a technological additive (functional group: binders) for all animal species. The Panel on Additives and Products or Substances used in Animal Feed (FEEDAP) assessed the data provided by the applicant in the technical dossier. During the course of the assessment, the absence and/or incompleteness of information needed in order to be able to deliver an opinion on the safety and efficacy of this additive was identified and notified to the applicant. The information requested covered the format requirements of the application and the structure of the dossier. The applicant has failed to provide the additional information. Therefore, considering the data provided in the original dossier and the absence of response from the applicant to the requests from EFSA, the FEEDAP Panel is not in a position to deliver an opinion on the safety and efficacy of the additive lignosulphonate of magnesium as a technological additive for all animal species.
