Adapting to changing rules governing food supplements in the European Union is the central theme of an upcoming workshop hosted by Brussels-based consultancy, European Advisory Services (EAS).

The one-day event to be held on November 25, 2010, will scrutinise all regulatory aspects of successfully launching food supplements in the EU.

“Manufacturers are still often facing the necessity of country-specific reformulation of products containing in particular other food ingredients such as herbs, amino acids and other bioactive substances, which are still regulated at the national level,” ​said EAS scientific and regulatory affairs manager, Efi Leontopoulou.

Recent changes in the implementation of the EU nutrition and health claims regulation will also be discussed, especially the ramifications of the European Commission decision to adopt all European Food Safety Authority generic article 13.1 opinions at once toward the end of 2011.

Participants will also be taken through key legislations and practices in Europe which affect the marketing of food supplements, from national approaches to ingredients to rules on novel foods and health claims.

“We will therefore provide recommendations to companies on how they can continue to benefit from this period and make claims as well as use brand names for their ingredients and products,​ said Stefanie Geiser, EAS-Italy regulatory affairs manager.
