Europe’s Food Supplement Manufacturers Challenge “Batch-Wise” Approach To Health Claims

July 29, 2010: 08:35 AM EST
The trade group representing Europe’s food supplement and ingredient makers has formally complained to the European Ombudsman about the batch-wise approach to ruling on product health claims. The European Federation of Associations of Health Product Manufacturers (EHPM) said the complaint asks the ombudsman to recommend that the European Commission wait for the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to deliver all of its health claim evaluations “before any further steps are taken towards a formal decision about the Community list of permitted Article 13.1 claims” because “the current batch-wise approach is maladministration.” Unless the batch-wise process is abandoned, “legal and valid claims that are essential for the food supplement and food ingredient sectors will be wiped out – without taking any time to seriously consider what we stand to lose.”
