Description of Content

This draft Commission Regulation concerns the authorisation of one health claim made on foods and referring to the reduction of disease risk in accordance with Article 17(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006 on nutrition and health claims made on foods.

Objectives & Rationale
<p style="margin:2px !important;"><span style="font-face: Verdana;">The proposed measure is a Commission Regulation for one health claim as referred to above under point 6 that has been assessed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) with a favourable outcome. Taking into account the opinion of the Authority, any relevant provisions of Union law and other legitimate factors relevant to the matter under consideration, a health claim reflecting this conclusion is considered as complying with the requirements of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 and should be included in the Union list of permitted claims, established by Regulation (EU) No 432/2012.</span></p>
