HEALTH CLAIMS - Council discussions: Health claims made on foods

The following is an extract from the General Affairs Council meeting:

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of two Commission regulations refusing to authorise certain health claims made on foods, other than those referring to the reduction of disease risk and to children's development and health (16169/13 + ADD 1 + 16181/13 + ADD 1).

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.
