DRAFT DHSC Guidance Notes on Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/127 (supplementing Regulation (EU) No 609/2013)
16th August 2021
The UK has held a consultation on draft guidance on Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/127 for infant formula and follow-on formula which we are sharing with stakeholders in advance of publication on GOV.UK.
The guidance has been developed by the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) and specifically refers to England, although the principles are similar throughout GB (Scotland and Wales). The Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland (NIP) means that EU legislation relating to nutrition, as detailed in Annex 2 of the NIP, continues to be directly applicable in Northern Ireland (NI). The guidance document is DHSC’s interpretation of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/127 (made under Regulation (EU) No 609/2013). This legislation provides specific compositional and information requirements for infant formula and follow-on formula and as regards requirements on information relating to infant and young child feeding.
