Abstract: The purpose of this chapter is to give an overview of European legislation related to the conditions of use of protein containing processed animal by-products and in particular meat and bone meal in the feed chain over the last 15 years. Given the fact that corresponding provisions changed over time we will also elaborate on the consequences for the performance profile of analytical methodology required to enforce legal requirements. The chapter will also give an overview of some National and European initiatives launched to contribute to the implementation of the European legislation. Through those projects, the expectations and limitations of the analytical methods to meet the legislative requirements are presented. The chapter focus on three main periods of the feed ban legislation and in the development of corresponding analytical methods. A special attention is given to the possibility of the quantification of the presence of processed animal proteins (PAPs) in feedingstuffs. The consequences of the compulsory and strict rendering conditions on the analytical methods for the detection of PAPs are discussed as well.
