This guidance document addresses the approach to be taken for evaluating the need for further studies to assess the risk of a feed ingredient on the environment, under the proposed conditions of use. It includes a decision tree for the potential exclusion of feed ingredients from the need to assess its risk on the environment. Furthermore, for ingredients, which are not excluded, it provides a simple approach, based on the risk quotient, to evaluate whether the potential concentration in the environment would necessitate further assessment. This guidance document will be supplemented by a second guidance document providing more information on the next steps, for feed ingredients necessitating further evaluation.
