    The New Novel Food Regulation – The Transition Begins!

    The long awaited new novel food regulation has finally made its very welcome arrival to update and streamline the approach to gaining approval for new food and food ingredients in the EU. It’s main benefits are to clarify the scope and definitions, to introduce a centralised procedure and to introduce a notification process for “traditional foods from third countries”. Whilst it also introduces a generic “Union List”, it also allows proprietary submissions in some cases. Although the actual legal enactment is not until January 2018, there is so much to do in the meantime.

    Understanding EU Dietary Intake Estimates – Focus on Enzymes

    EFSA has recently launched a public consultation on their draft Statement on exposure assessments for food enzymes.  A key aspect which may have implications for previously submitted applications is the updated recommendation of a tiered approach, starting with a much more conservative method than previously advised.  Attend this webinar to learn the details of EFSA’s proposed two-tier strategy for assessing food enzyme intake and the strengths and limitations of this system.

    A Revised Guidance Document for EU Health Claim Applications - What you need to know

    While the original Scientific and technical guidance for the preparation and presentation of a health claim application in the EU was first published in 2007, the subsequent update (2011) has been the only revision provided to date. In January 2016, EFSA’s Panel on Dietetic Products Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) revised the General scientific guidance for stakeholders on health claim applications. As such, the Scientific and technical guidance for the preparation and presentation of a health claim application requires revision and is the current subject of a public consultation. This newly revised scientific and technical guidance document aims to ensure consistency in the preparation of well-structured applications, provide more clarity with respect to key issues in the substantiation of a health claim, and improve efficiency with the application process. This webinar highlights the key changes applied to the current EU health claim application guidance document, and is of value to any companies planning to submit a health claim application in the EU.
