CLAIMS – Council discussions: Health claims made on foods

The following is an extract from the minutes of the General Affairs Council Meeting on the 25 April 2017:

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of three Commission regulations refusing to authorise certain health claims made on foods (7671/17, 7683/17, 7690/17).

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