Description:
The purpose of this guidance note is to provide competent authorities, infant formulae and followon formulae manufacturers and retailers with guidance on the implementation of the legislation governing the composition and marketing of infant formulae and follow-on formulae as provided for in the European Communities (Infant Formulae and Follow-on Formulae) Regulations 2007 and 2009. The principal purpose of the legislation and this guidance note is to contribute to the health of infants, bearing in mind that the encouragement and protection of breastfeeding is an important aspect of health care. It takes account of international discussions, in particular, those in Codex Alimentarius in relation to the timing of the introduction of complementary foods into the diet of infants. For the most part, the EU and national legislation is self explanatory. This guidance note focuses on key areas of the legislation where advice is required: • Marketing requirements including labelling, presentation, advertising and promotion of infant formulae and follow-on formulae • Notification of infant formulae • Export of infant formulae and follow-on formulae to Third Countries
