Food supplements in the EU
At the EU level the Directive 2002/46/EC is applicable alongside other Regulations of different character (such as the Food safety law Regulation 178/2002 and the Food Information to Consumers Regulation 1169/2011). This EU legislation states the maximum and minimum level of substances, as well as several documentation and labelling requirements. Nevertheless, adding to these harmonized rules applies national legislation, which may state additional restrictions and labelling requirements. Furthermore, in certain EU countries it is also necessary to register the food supplement in a national database prior to place them in the market.
Therefore, Obelis can assist you through the food supplements EU revision service to meet the restrictions stated in the harmonized EU legislation and national legislation, such as maximum and minimum levels of vitamins and minerals and labelling requirements. Moreover, when necessary, Obelis will also carry out the registration in national databases prior to the placing of the food supplement in the market.
