Webinar Overview

The successful registration of Novel Foods in the European Union requires the development of a comprehensive dossier that adheres to various regulations and guidelines. Failure to navigate this process diligently can lead to significant delays in bringing your product to the market, resulting in both time and financial losses.

In the EU system, any food that was not consumed “significantly” by humans prior to 15 May 1997 is considered to be a novel food. Novel foods are regulated according to Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 and require pre-market authorisation.

The webinar aims to provide valuable information and actionable insights to those looking to navigate the EU Novel Food registration process successfully, enabling them to bring their innovative food products to the European market with confidence. Join us to learn about:

  • The framework surrounding the approval and market access of Novel Food in the EU: regulatory framework, safety assessment and risk evaluation, market access and labelling
  • Recently submitted Novel Food application and the insights from EFSA Opinions

Duration: 45min presentation followed by 15 min Q&A session
