Allégations nutritionnelles et de santé

Health claims made in relation to food products require authorisation under Regulation EC 1924/2006 before they can be used in the labelling and marketing of these products in the EU. Within the context of this authorisation procedure, EFSA’s Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) is responsible for verifying the scientific substantiation of the health claims.

Detailed information on the application procedure, including how to check the status, question number and deadlines, is available on the nutrition pages of the Applications helpdesk section of this website. Guidance documents published by the NDA Panel are also essential reading for the preparation of health claim applications.
