Food Additives and Food Enzymes Services

Intertek provides scientific and regulatory support for compliance for food additives, enzymes, and flavourings.

On January 12, 2010, Regulation (EC) No 1331/2008 of the European Parliament came into force. To protect human health, this EU Regulation established a common authorisation procedure for food additives and food enzymes.  Regulation (EC) No 1331/2008 establishes a Community list of approved food enzymes. All new and existing food enzymes must undergo an authorization procedure prior to inclusion on the Community list. The information required for a dossier submission varies depending on the nature of the food enzyme, intended use, history of consumption and estimated exposure.
