The Health and Nutrition Claims legislation is having a major impact. EFSA has published many negative Opinions and the European Commission and Member States are now banning these claims from the EU market.
Our Brussels-based editorial team monitors the progress of legislation at every stage - from initiation, to adoption by the Commission, through the Standing Committees, the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament. We follow developments at the main Council meetings and analyse the positions of Member States on important issues. EU Food Law closely follows scientific advice from EFSA as well as national agencies such as the UK Food Standards Agency, BfR (German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment) and the French food safety agency Afssa.
Throughout Europe we have a network of contributors monitoring new legislation, policy proposals and the latest developments on food law in the Member States. EU Food Law reports on new policy initiatives affecting the food industry and the implementation of EU legislation, and also monitors the regulation of the food industry outside the European Union.
EU Food Law also monitors new legislation in other sectors that affect the food industry, including packaging and waste law, employment law, consumer policy, competition law and environment law.
EU Food Law is constantly speaking to top industry people including recent interviews with Catherine Geslain-Laneelle, Executive Director of EFSA and Robert Madelin, Director General of DG SANCO. EU Food Law includes regular coverage of key rapporteurs such as Renate Sommer, Food Information, and Kartika Liotard, Novel Foods.
