Reading it Right on Novel Foods – new food law regulation

On 1 January 2018, Regulation (EC) No. 258/97 on novel foods and novel ingredients will be repealed and replaced with Regulation (EU) No. 2015/2283 on novel foods.

Although the incoming Regulation has the same ‘cut off’ date of 15 May 1997 for defining a novel food, it brings some changes to the authorisation process and classification of categories of novel foods.

Expert speakers will meet on 27 September 2017 to discuss the implications of these changes, such as the points expected to be of priority in future reviews of novel foods and the potential effects of Regulation 2015/2283 on certain food categories already present on the market. The event is organised by IFST Food Law Group.
