EFSA – Council discussions: Health claim on foods

The following is an extract from the minutes of the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council meeting on the 8 December 2016:

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission regulation refusing to authorise a health claim made on foods referring to the reduction of disease risk (see 13869/16).

The Commission regulation is subject to the so called regulatory procedure with scrutiny. This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the Commission may adopt the regulation, unless the European Parliament objects.
