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 company planning to submit a health claim application in the EU.
