Infant formula and foods for medical purposes: notification

Guidance and notification forms for introducing medical foods and infant formula to the UK.



Under EU Regulation (EU) 609/2013, there is a requirement to notify the relevant authority when medical foods and infant formula are first put on the market in a member state.

This non-statutory guidance and these notification forms are aimed at companies that manufacture, process, distribute, use, sell or import infant formula and follow-on formula in the UK. The guidance will also be relevant to local authorities who are responsible for enforcing the legislation in this area.
