Regulation (EU) No 609/2013 on food intended for infants and young children, food for special medical purposes and total diet replacement for weight control, was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 12 June 2013.  The new Regulation allows the Commission to create specific compositional and information requirements and update the list of categories of allowed nutrient ingredients in these foods from 19th July 2013.  Technical guidelines may be adopted to assist compliance, particularly by small and medium companies. The Commission, after consulting with the European Food Safety Authority, is required to present a report to the European Parliament and the European Council by 20th July 2015 “on the necessity, if any, of provisions for food intended for sportspeople.” The PARNUTS Framework Directive 2009/39 will be repealed from 20th July 2016 and products currently sold under PARNUTS and placed on the market or labelled before 20th July 2016 will be allowed to be marketed until stocks are exhausted.
