European Commission Amends Food Additive Regulations

On June 20, the European Commission notified the WTO of Commission Regulation (EU) No. 601/2014, which amends Annex II to Regulation (EC) No. 1333/2008 regarding food categories of meat and the use of certain food additives in meat preparations.
The new legislation is partly about a new classification of meat products, now classified as:

08.1 Fresh meat, excluding meat preparations as defined by Regulation (EC) No 853/2004
08.2 Meat preparations as defined by Regulation (EC) No 853/2004
08.3 Meat products
There will be no changes in approval of our ingredients as a result of this change.
In future efforts, approval or regulatory changes of ingredients might be tuned more specifically according to the new meat categories.
This amendment was published on June 5 and will take effect on June 25.  Relevant regulatory changes will be entered into the International Food Additive Database at that time.
