The Food Standard Agency is consulting on the English interpretation of the Novel Food Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 (and similar consultations will occur in devolved administrations). IFST Scientific Committee are asking for comments that members would like included in a combined IFST response.
Comments can be on the regulation itself or on the draft impact assessment that FSA have prepared. The FSA consider the impacts on businesses to be limited to the costs of familiarisation with the new regulation.

Any comments, either general or specifically addressing FSA’s questions, should be sent to John Bassett before end of Friday, 5 May 2017.
