Regulatory Services in United Kingdom


The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is responsible for food safety and food hygiene across the UK. However, the food products in UK are following with European Food Information to Consumers Regulation No 1169/2011 (FIC) and the Food Information Regulations 2014 (FIR).

The European regulations specify compositional and labelling requirements of food supplements, including the vitamin and mineral substances permitted the use in food supplements, specific legislative rules for food supplements, fortified foods, food for particular nutritional uses “parnuts” foods (i.e. infant formula, follow-on formula, medical foods, baby foods, slimming foods and gluten-free foods), and foods making health claims or nutrition claims. For Novel food authorization, it is required to have a pre-market safety assessment and authorisation. As of now, in UK, there is now a transition period while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements.
