EU Novel foods: market access for traditional products

The Council of the EU’s Permanent Representatives Committee approved a final compromise text on new EU rules for novel foods. The text includes the European Parliament's amendments that were accepted by the Council. The compromise text is deemed to be a significant improvement on the current rules on novel foods and takes into consideration: (i) novel foods will be available on the EU market, while preserving the high level of protection of human health; (ii) generic authorisations (i.e via any food business operator) are proposed, as opposed to centralised EU-level procedures (which previously authorized the provider as opposed to the food product) to cut the current administrative burdens; (iii) facilitating EU market access for traditional foods from third countries, once the applicant can demonstrate consistent food safety for at least 25 years; (iv) engineered nanomaterials; (v) cloning rules, including food from cloned animals. The European Parliament shall vote on the Council's compromise text in the week starting on 4 July 2015.
