Title Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1266 of 20 July 2022 concerning the authorisation of monosodium glutamate produced by fermentation with Corynebacterium glutamicum KCCM 80187 as a feed additive for all animal species
Summary

In accordance with Article 7(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 an application was submitted for the authorisation of monosodium glutamate produced by fermentation with Corynebacterium glutamicum KCCM 80187. That application was accompanied by the particulars and documents required under Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. The application concerns the authorisation of monosodium glutamate as a feed additive for all animal species, to be classified in the category 'sensory additives' and in the functional group 'flavouring compounds'. The applicant requested the additive to be authorised also for use in water for drinking. However, Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 does not allow the authorisation of 'flavouring compounds' for use in water for drinking. Therefore, the use of monosodium glutamate produced by fermentation with Corynebacterium glutamicum KCCM 80187 in water for drinking should not be allowed. The European Food Safety Authority ('the Authority') concluded in its opinion of 10 November 2021 that, under the proposed conditions of use, monosodium glutamate produced by fermentation with Corynebacterium glutamicum KCCM 80187 does not have adverse effects on animal health, human health or the environment. The Authority concluded in the opinion that the additive is not toxic by inhalation, is not irritant to skin or eyes and is not adermal sensitiser. The Authority further concluded, that monosodium glutamate is efficacious for contributing to the flavour of feed. The Authority also verified the report on the methods of analysis of the feed additive in feed submitted by the Reference Laboratory set up by Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. The assessment of monosodium glutamate produced by fermentation with Corynebacterium glutamicum KCCM 80187 shows that the conditions for authorisation, as provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, are satisfied. Accordingly, the use of that substance should be authorised as specified in the Annex to this Regulation. Certain conditions should be provided for to allow better control. In particular, a recommended content should be indicated on the label of the feed additives. Where such content is exceeded, certain information should be indicated on the label of premixtures. The fact that monosodium glutamate produced by fermentation with Corynebacterium glutamicum KCCM 80187 is not authorised for use as a flavouring in water for drinking, does not preclude its use in compound feed which is administered via water.
