Regulatory issues

EHPM action aims to contribute to the solution of long-standing regulatory challenges with a proactive and balanced approach.

The full application of the Mutual Recognition Principle (Reg. (EU) 2019/515), a workable and fair approach to the assessment on Botanical Health Claims on foods and food supplements (Reg. (EU) 1924/2006), a proper and transparent use of the EU Risk Management Procedure concerning substances in foods and food supplements other than vitamins and minerals (Reg. (EU) 1925/2006): These are main regulatory objectives EHPM aims to achieve through the development of concrete inputs towards the European Institutions and National Authorities.

Besides the regulatory challenges peculiar to our sector, food business operators are facing an unprecedented challenge: Brexit will inevitably new create barriers to trade and cross-border exchanges. These changes are unavoidable and stakeholders must make sure they are ready for them. EHPM will provide its members with up-to-date information to meet this challenge.
