76.     Feed intended for particular nutritional purposes.

Feed intended for particular nutritional purposes is controlled by EU legislation establishing a list of intended uses of animal feeding stuffs for particular nutritional purposes, and setting out the precise use, the essential nutritional characteristics, the labelling declarations, the recommended length of time of use and, where appropriate, any special labelling requirements1. These provisions have been implemented by statutory instruments creating offences for failure to comply with the EU provisions2.
