HEALTH CLAIMS / ADDITIVES - Council considers Commissions proposed Regulations relating to health claims and food additives
The Council decided not to oppose adoption of the following three Commission acts:
- a regulation refusing to authorise certain health claims made on foods and referring to the reduction of disease risk and to children's development and health (12963/10);
- a regulation refusing to authorise a health claim made on foods, other than those referring to the reduction of disease risk and children's development and health (12962/10);
- a directive amending the Annexes to directive 95/2 on food additives other than colours and sweeteners (12854/10).
The Commission legislation is subject to the "regulatory procedure with scrutiny". This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the Commission may adopt the acts, unless the European Parliament objects.
