We provide safety assessments particularly for microbiologically or biotechnologically produced feed additives. Our experts know which safety evaluations are required for additives, which allows for sensible and cost-effective planning of the required analyses.


  • Which one of my many isolates is the safest to use for my product development?
  • Does it contain genetic elements of concern?
  • When used, can it lead to animal or human toxicity?
  • Can it spread antimicrobial resistance?
  • Does my product contain viable production organisms?
  • Does my product contain DNA from the production organism?

Assisting you at all steps of feed additives product registration

Registration is required before a feed additive can be marketed within the European Union or USA. For this purpose, an application is submitted to either the European Commission and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) or the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

To prove the safety and efficacy of feed additives, a dossier with all the necessary evidence is included in the application. For the EU/EFSA, the dossier is assessed by the FEEDAP Panel, who also provides scientific advice and guidance documents to the applicants. If the feed additive fulfills the EFSA requirements, there is a high probability that it will pass the approval process also outside of the EU. BaseClear can assist you during the early stages of product development and in fulfilling the scientific and legal requirements, particularly for products based on microorganisms.
