Summary

Feed additives are allowed if listed in the corresponding appendix (10.4.6.). The amount of copper and zinc is limited. The use of certain substances requires approval of BIOLAND and some can only be used for specific purposes. (Bioland production standards, 4.4.4 Feed additives; Bioland production standards, 10.4.6 Permitted single fodder and additives as feed additives in feeding animals)

Difference

The provisions are very similar but in some cases more detailed, i.e. the EU Regulation 2092/91 does not limit the amount of copper and zinc and preservatives do not require specific approval.

Justification

Avoiding contamination with copper and zinc in outdoor runs and manure.
