HEALTH CLAIMS / ADDITIVES – Council considers amendments to Regulations
The following is an extract from the minutes of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council meeting on the 6 May 2014
The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of the following Commission regulations:
- regulation amending regulations 983/2009 and 384/2010, modifying the conditions of use of certain health claims related to the lowering effect of plant sterols and plant stanols on blood LDL-cholesterol (7579/14);
- regulation amending annex II to regulation 1333/2008, authorising certain food additives for the use in meat preparations (7748/14);
- regulation amending annex II to regulation 1333/2008, authorising the use of polyvinyl alcohol-polyethylene glycol-graft-co-polymer for use in aqueous instant-release film coatings for food supplements (8753/14).
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.
