Article 13.1 claims now published in OJ

The 222 ‘general function’ Article 13.1 health claims, approved on 16 May by the European Commission, have now been published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

More than 1600 proposed health associations were not authorised and food manufacturers now have six months to comply with the Article 13.1 “general function” health claims. The new Regulation comes into force on 14 June and, from 14 December 2012, any claims that are not authorised and not on hold/under consideration will be prohibited.
