Notification of food supplements in Spain and other Member States
In accordance with the provisions of the food supplements regulations, the person responsible for marketing them must notify the competent authorities of their placing on the national market. This procedure must be carried out prior or simultaneous to the first placing on the market. Said mandatory notification must be made by the manufacturer or the person responsible for the first placing on the market or the importer (in the case of third countries).
Given the limitations established in Spain for the addition of substances to food supplements, it is necessary before notifying Spanish territory to notify another country of the European Union through mutual recognition. Currently, as advisors on food supplements, we notify in Belgium, France, United Kingdom, Portugal, Malta, Ireland and Italy, expanding more and more the states in which to notify. Beforehand, we analyze the label and the technical sheet to check if the food supplement complies with the country’s regulations.

Since many new products carry plants or substances with certain natures, prior to any investment, it is convenient to analyze the legal scope of the product.
