Intertek provides regulatory assessment and pre-market consulting for food enzymes and processing aids.

Enzymes and processing aids are an integral aspect of food ingredient production, but they invite complex regulatory requirements that call for a strategic approach to compliance. Considerations include substantiating their technical effect, characterizing their source organism, and quantifying their presence in a final food ingredient. Regulations on enzymes and processing aids are further complicated by the varying requirements and submission processes across jurisdictions. Through our global network technical and regulatory experts, we offer bespoke solutions for efficient market entry in jurisdictions such as the United States, the European Union, Canada, Japan, Australia/New Zealand, and China.

Our network of 1,000 laboratories and over 44,000 experts in more than 100 countries makes us the global leader in Assurance, Testing, Inspection, and Certification. As industry leaders in safety assessment, intake modeling, and toxicology, we support enzyme approvals in the European Union under Regulation (EC) No 1331/2008 and are the most successful firm in pre-market submission activities for enzymes in multiple jurisdictions including North America and China. We also support processing aid determinations in several jurisdictions, including but not limited to, assistance obtaining a Letter of No Objection for classification as a processing aid in Canada.

We offer customized consulting services with protocols designed for efficiency and quality, guiding you through unique business challenges with a high success rate.
