ADDITIVES / CLAIMS – Council consideration of Commission proposed regulations
The following is an extract form the Minutes of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held on 22 and 23 October 2012:
The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of the following six Commission regulations:
- a regulation authorising the use of polyglycitol syrup in certain food categories (12073/12);
- a regulation extending the deadline for submitting enzyme applications (13081/12);
- a regulation amending the maximum levels for aflatoxins in dried figs in order to take account of recent developments in Codex Alimentarius (13082/12);
- a regulation authorising the use of dimethyl polysiloxane as an anti-foaming agent in food supplements as from the twentieth day after the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the EU (13083/12);
- a regulation authorising a health claim on foods (13055/12);
- a regulation amending the conditions of use of certain nutrition claims (13767/12).
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.
