PATHWAY-27 Guidance Paper Workshops in Brussels

Date: 21-22 September 2017

Place: Thon Hotel Brussels City Centre, Brussels, Belgium

Since the adoption of the Regulation on nutrition and health claims by the European Commission in 2006, companies and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in particular, have faced scientific, legal, administrative and financial difficulties when trying to build a health claim dossier. Guidance for stakeholders more specifically interested in health claims relating to bioactive compounds and bioactive-enriched foods would be helpful. As part of its work programme, the PATHWAY-27 consortium has developed two guidance papers: 

  • The 'Scientific Guidelines' highlight best practices when designing and running randomised controlled intervention trials, which aim to demonstrate the claimed effect and are a requirement of health claim dossiers. 
  • The 'Industry Guidelines' are intended as a practical guide from product development to the submission of a health claim dossier.

Workshop 1 will focus on the 'Scientific Guidelines' on 21st September 2017. Flyer of the event. 

Workshop 2 will focus on the 'Industry Guidelines' on 22nd September 2017. Flyer of the event.
