New enforcement measure for health and nutrition claims regulation


Mar 01, 2024

The Nutrition and Health Claims (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2024 has been published on 20th February 2024 and will come into force on 1st October 2024.

The Amendment introduces a new enforcement measure, the improvement notice, for the provisions of the Nutrition and Health Claims Regulations. By the improvement notice, the authority will inform the company about the reasons for non-compliance, the measures the company must take to secure compliance and the deadline to take those measures, which cannot be less than 14 days. Failure to comply with the improvement notice will make the company prosecutable.

The improvement notice has been introduced to facilitate the enforcement of the regulations in case of non-compliances, considering the relevant sanctions (imprisonment not exceeding two years, a fine or both) are in practice rarely applied.
