Guidance to compliance with Regulation (EC) 1924/2006 - Article 28 published

UK

Nov 15, 2021

Legislation on nutrition and health claims made on food is a devolved matter for the UK. While these guidance notes have been developed by DHSC and specifically refer to England, the principles are similar throughout GB (Scotland and Wales).

The transition period for food products with nutrition or health claims implied by a trademark or brand name which existed before 1 January 2005 will end on 19 January 2022. After this date, the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 apply, irrespective of when the trademark or brand name was introduced. Existing trademarks or brand names suggesting health or nutrition benefits that do not meet the requirement of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006, must be phased out and removed from the market.
