New Novel Foods Regulation
A new Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 on novel foods was adopted on 25 November 2015. It shall apply from 1 January 2018, date by when Regulation (EC) No 258/97 is repealed.
The new Regulation increases the efficiency of the authorisation procedure, enables a quicker delivery of safe, innovative food to market and removes unnecessary barriers to trade, whilst ensuring a high level of food safety.
