Core legislative framework: Regulation (EU) No 609/2013

Regulation (EU) No 609/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 June 2013 inaugurates a new set of rules on food intended for infants and young children, food for special medical purposes, and total diet replacement for weight control. The concept of “foodstuffs for particular nutritional uses” - which has served as a basis of previous legislation - is superseded by this Regulation.
