On May 27, 2024, the expert committee of the CAA published a report on their recommendations for future FFC (Foods with Function Claims) systems. This report is the final version, replacing the draft version published on May 23, 2024. There are no major changes between the final and draft versions; the key points remain the same.

Key Recommendations:

  • Mandatory Reporting: Food business operators should be legally obliged to report health damages associated with their FFC products to the CAA and their local authorities.
  • Good Manufacturing Practices: Food business operators selling supplement-form FFC products should be legally obliged to manage their manufacturing processes according to Good Manufacturing Practices.

Impact: Food business operators may face increased legal obligations when manufacturing and selling FFC products.

Next Steps: The CAA will discuss and decide on necessary revisions of the FFC system, taking into account these recommendations.

Stay tuned for further updates on this important development in food safety and regulation.
