EFSA Launch of public consultation: Discussion paper on the revision of guidance for health claims on gut and immune function


Dear Dietitian,

We would like to inform you that the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has launched today an on-line public consultation on a Discussion paper on the revision of the guidance on the scientific requirements for health claims related to gut and immune function.

This document is a discussion paper released with the aim of collecting comments and suggestions from interested parties before drafting the guidance document. It proposes a plan for the revision, outlines the scope and issues to be covered in the revised guidance document, and proposes a timetable for finalising the guidance. The outcome of the public consultation, together with new scientific evidence available to the NDA Panel and the experience gained with the evaluation of health claims, will serve as a basis for revising the guidance document.

The public consultation will remain open until Wednesday 10 September 2014 and can be accessed via the following link: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/consultations/call/140618.htm


With best regards,

Judith Ricketts

On behalf of the SHPlatform Secretariat
