Strategic advice on nutritional products
Guidance on national notification and registration procedures
Through close contacts with government officials and national expert networks we guide companies through the various national notification and registration procedures for different food categories to ensure compliance with the food regulations.
While notification or registration of certain food categories is mandatory across the EU (eg. foods for special medical purposes), differing national laws apply for certain other categories (eg. food supplements and fortified foods), and these requirements must then individually be taken into consideration.
EAS supports manufacturers to:
- understand different national procedures and timings for product launch
- compile the necessary data for marketing their food products in different Member States. This can vary nationally from the submission of just the product label to submitting an elaborated dossier substantiating the safety and stability of the ingredients as well as the nutritional and physiological effect of the final product.
We help companies to improve the quality of their dossiers, and thereby increase the chances of product acceptance by national authorities.
