CLAIMS - Health claims on foods: Council discussion of Commission's proposals

The following is an extract from the Minutes of the Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council meeting held on 31 March 2011:

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission regulation on the authorisation and refusal of certain health claims made on foods and referring to children's development and health (5610/11).

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