17 December 1996: ADDITIVES - Miscellaneous Additives Amendment

MAFF Letter, 17 December 1996

Miscellaneous Additives Amendment

As previously noted [see
2 July 1996], a Common Position for an amendment to Directive 95/2 was adopted on the 25 June 1996. The amending Directive was formally adopted at the Environment Council on 9/10 December. It provides for the addition to Annex I of "E407a Processed Eucheuma Seaweed" at quantum satis (good manufacturing practice level). The text will be published in the Official Journal in due course.

The amendment has to be implemented by Member States - probably by 25 September 1997 (although the version circulated by MAFF states "1996").
