SCHEDULE 4PERMITTED ADDITIVES AND PROVISIONS RELATING TO THEIR USE

1.  In this Schedule “material” means “material intended for use as a feeding stuff”, and any reference to a numbered Part is a reference to the Part bearing that number in the Table in this Schedule.

2.  No material shall contain any added antioxidant other than one named or described in column 2 of Part I, or any antioxidant so named or described unless, taking into account any such antioxidant which is naturally present, the maximum content (if any) specified in relation thereto in column 4 of that Part is not exceeded.

3.  No material shall contain—

(a)any colourant other than one named or described in column 2 of Part II; or

(b)any colourant named or described in column 2 of Part II unless—

(i)the material is intended for an animal listed opposite the colourant in question in column 4 of that Part;

(ii)taking into account any such colourant as is naturally present, the maximum content (if any) specified in relation thereto in column 5 of that Part is not exceeded; and

(iii)the material complies with the conditions (if any) specified in relation thereto in column 6 of that Part.

4.—(1) No material shall contain any added emulsifier, stabiliser, thickener or gelling agent other than one named or described in Part III, or any emulsifier or stabiliser named or described in Chapter A of Part III unless the material is to be used in accordance with the specification, if any, laid down in respect of it in that Chapter.

(2) No material shall contain any substance named or described in column 2 of Chapter B of Part III unless—

(a)that material is intended for animals listed opposite the substance in question in column 3 of that Chapter;

(b)taking account of any such substance which is naturally present, the maximum content (if any) specified in relation thereto in column 4 of that Chapter is not exceeded; and

(c)the material complies with the conditions specified in relation thereto in column 5 of that Chapter.

5.  No material shall contain any added binder, anti-caking agent or coagulant other than one named or described in Part IV, or any substance named or described in Chapter B of that Part unless—

(a)taking account of any such substance which is naturally present, the maximum content (if any) specified in relation thereto in column 4 of that Chapter is not exceeded;

(b)the material is to be used in accordance with the conditions (if anyj laid down in respect of it in column 5 of that Chapter; and

6.—(1) Material may contain any vitamin (not being vitamin A, D2 or D3) or any pro-vitamin or chemically well defined substance having a similar effect.

(2) No material may contain any added vitamin A, D2 or D3 unless—

(a)the material is for a species of category of animal listed opposite the vitamin in question in column 3 of Part V,

(b)taking into account any such vitamin as is naturally present, the maximum content (if any) specified in relation thereto in column 4 of that Part is not exceeded; and

7.—(1) No material shall contain any added trace element other than one from a source specified in columns 3 and 4 of Part VI.

(2) No material shall contain any added trace element from a source so specified in proportions which, taking account of any such trace element which is naturally present exceed, in respect of animals (if any) listed opposite the trace element in question in column 5, the maximum content specified in relation thereto in column 6 of that Part.

(3) No material shall contain any added trace element from a source so specified which does not comply with the conditions (if any) specified in respect of that source in column 7 of that Part.

8.  No material shall contain—

(a)any added aromatic or appetising substance other than one named or described in column 2 of Part VII;

10.  Material intended for use as a pet food for dogs and cats may contain any of the acidity regulators named in Part IX.

11.  No material shall contain—

(a)any added enzyme, other than one named or described in column 2 of Part X; or

(b)any added enzyme named or described in column 2 of that Part unless—

(i)the material is for a species or category of animal listed opposite the enzyme in question in column 4 of that Part, and the animal concerned is of an age no greater than that (if any) specified in column 5 of that Part;

(ii)taking into account any such enzyme which is naturally present, the content of the enzyme is not less than the minimum (if any) specified in column 6 of that Part, and does not exceed the maximum (if any) specified in column 7 of that Part; and

(iii)the material is to be used in accordance with the conditions (if any) laid down in column 8 of that Part.

12.  Unless otherwise stated, any maximum or minimum specified in the Table for the content of any additive in any feeding stuff is so specified by reference to a complete feeding stuff with a moisture content of 12%.
