Romanian Parliament votes to introduce a strong new law
Updated February 2017
The Romanian Parliament voted 1 year ago to introduce a new law that is significantly stronger than specified by EU Regulations. The law is due to come into effect in April.
This is a very much needed development and we congratulate all who were involved.
CLICK HERE or romanian-draft for the notification and text of the law on the EU Commission’s DG Grow website. Because there have been comments by: Portugal, Sweden and the United Kingdom and a detailed opinion by: Austria and France the standstill period has been extended for a further three months to 18th April. It is not possible for us to see these comments, but hopefully Romania has all the information it needs to respond to any challenge.

Romania wants to ban the promotion of infant formula products for children up to the age of two years, but it remains to be seen whether this draft law will make it past EU scrutiny.
