Food Supplements Notification Form
Notification of Food Supplements is a statutory requirement under Commission Directive 2002/46/EC as transposed by S.I. No. 506 of 2007, which cover the enforcement of food legislation in the area of food supplements. This form may be used to notify the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) when a food supplement is placed on the Irish market for the first time.
The duty to notify falls on the manufacturer if the product is manufactured in Ireland and on the importer if the product is imported into Ireland . A separate form is required for each product* and in the case of reformulation (i.e. ingredients/ingredient levels) or changes in claims.
* In the case where a product which exists in varying pack sizes (e.g. 30, 60 and 90 capsules) is being notified, it is only necessary to fill out 1 notification, to which multiple labels can be attached (up to a maximum of 6)
Food Supplements Notification form
Please note: It is up to each company to maintain records of the products they have notified. We therefore suggest that each company sets up their own company specific account (using a generic email address e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, and password), for use when submitting notifications. This is to prevent loss of access to submissions that may occur if the account is set up in an individual employee’s name (and email address), and that employee leaves the company.
