FoodEx2 is a comprehensive food classification and description system released by EFSA in 2011 (revision 1) and replaced in April 2015 by FoodEx2 revision 2, as a consequence of a testing phase. A first maintenance of the system was carried out in 2015 and a second during the years 2016‐2018 in order to evaluate further comments and proposals provided to EFSA by users and stakeholders. This technical report describes the outcome of the second maintenance process, including addition of new terms, disposal of existing terms and amendments to existing terms including enrichment of implicit facets.
