The Union List of Authorised Novel Foods

Bernd Haber, Sebastian Aurich

EU Novel Food framework has been updated by Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 introducing a fully new element of compiling and displaying novel food approvals: the generic “Union List” of authorised novel foods. This article exemplarily addresses questions to the content of this list, to transferred specifications of novel foods and to elements like proper labelling. Finally, options are presented for improving the list including requests for a harmonized approach to the benefit of all involved parties.
