SUPPLEMENTS – Council discussions: Authorisation of organic silicon in food supplements

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 a Commission regulation authorising the use of organic silicon (monomethylsilanetriol) in the manufacture of food supplements (7686/17).

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 it, unless the European Parliament objects.
