Brief description:
Food business operators who intend to place a novel food on the European Union market must check whether the food falls within the scope of the new food regulation. If the operator is not convinced of the status of the product, he or she may apply for assistance to the competent authority of the Member State in which he intends to first place the novel food on the market (in Latvia - Food and Veterinary Service). In order to obtain a decision of the PVD on the status of the novel food, operators must submit certain information on the product - an advisory request.
