Commission Implementing Regulation(EU) 2022/593 of 1 March 2022 concerning the authorisation of litsea berry essential oil as a feed additive for certain animal species (Text with EEA relevance) 

Litsea berry essential oil was authorised without a time limit in accordance with Directive 70/524/EEC as feed additive for all animal species. This additive was subsequently entered in the Register of feed additives as existing product, in accordance with Article 10(1)(b) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. In accordance with Article 10(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 in conjunction with Article 7 thereof, an application was submitted for the re-evaluation of litsea berry essential oil for all animal species. The applicant requested the additive to be classified in the additive category ‘sensory additives’ and in the functional group ‘flavouring compounds’. That application was accompanied by the particulars and documents required under Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. The applicant requested litsea berry essential oil 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 fordrinking. Therefore, the use of litsea berry essential oil in water for drinking should not be allowed.

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/537 of 4 April 2022 concerning the authorisation of a preparation of lemon extract as a feed additive for all animal species (Text with EEA relevance)

Lemon extract was authorized without a time limit in accordance with Directive 70/524/EEC as a feed additive for all animal species. That additive was subsequently entered in the Register of feed additives as an existing product, in accordance with Article 10(1)(b) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. In accordance with Article 10(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 in conjunction with Article 7 thereof, an application was submitted for the re-evaluation of a preparation of lemon extract for all animal species. The applicant requested the additive to be classified in the additive category 'sensory additives' and in the functional group 'flavouring compounds'. That application was accompanied by the particulars and documents required under Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. The applicant requested the preparation of lemon extract to be authorized also for use in water for drinking. However, Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 does not allow the authorization of flavouring compounds for use inwater for drinking. Therefore, the use of the preparation of lemon extract in water for drinking should not be allowed. (The European Food Safety Authority ('the Authority') concluded in its opinion of 29 September 2021 that, under the proposed conditions of use, the preparation of lemon extract does not have adverse effects on animal health, consumer health or the environment. The Authority also concluded that the preparation of lemon extract should be considered a skin and eye irritant, and a potential corrosive. Therefore, the Commission considers that appropriate protective measures should be taken to prevent adverse effects on human health, in particular as regards the users of the additive.

Reducing Heavy Vehicle Lane Departure Crashes – Consultation Regulation Impact Statement https://www.infrastructure.gov.au/have-your-say/heavy-vehicle-lane-departure-systems

The Australian Government is examining the case for regulating the fitment of Lane Departure Warning Systems (LDWS) in heavy vehicles through the Australian Design Rules (ADRs). The impact of road trauma is significant, costing the Australian economy approximately $30 billion per year with heavy vehicle crashes comprising approximately $1.5 billion.Currently it is not a requirement for heavy vehicles to be fitted with a lane departure warning system (LDWS) even though there could be considerable benefits to all road users and the wider community. A LDWS can increase the driver’s alertness to an unintentional lane departure, helping to reduce the number of collisions resulting in severe or fatal injuries.This new ADR would be ADR 99/00. The vehicles affected fall under ADR sub-category MD, ME, NB and NC. It is proposed that  ADR 99/00 would adopt the requirements for LDWS contained in United Nations (UN) Regulation No. 130 – Uniform provisions concerning the approval of motor vehicles with regard to the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). https://unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/main/wp29/wp29regs/2013/R130e.pdf
