Česká asociace pro speciální potraviny (ČASP)

ČASP je zájmovým sdružením právnických osob, založeným v roce 2000. Asociace reprezentuje společné zájmy svých členů - výrobců a distributorů doplňků stravy - a to jak na národní, tak i na mezinárodní úrovni a jejím hlavním cílem je aktivně se podílet na utváření přiměřeného a vyváženého legislativního rámce pro produkty podporující zdraví. Zároveň se všichni členové asociace zavazují dodržovat vlastní etický kodex pro prodej a marketing, který jde nad rámec platné legislativy v ČR.

ČASP nyní zastupuje 19 firem, které představují podstatnou část trhu s doplňky stravy.

Naše Asociace je aktivním členem

23.12.2016 On-line consultation of the REFIT on botanicals starts today.

This is to inform you that the contractant (Food Chain Evaluation Consortium (FCEC) has just officially launched the on-line consultation relating to the REFIT of the Health Claims Regulation on nutrient profiles and botanicals.

As you are all aware, this launch was awaited as overdue since September.

The study methodology comprises extensive consultation of Member States Competent Authorities and all stakeholders directly or indirectly affected by these issues, including business, consumers and other non-business interest groups. The questionnaire of this survey is addressed to business associations or other non-business stakeholder organisations, including consumers, relevant business operators, and public health interest groups whether active at EU or national or regional level. However, it is not intended to be completed by individual companies. SMEs will be covered by another survey through the Europe Enterprise Network SME Panel. 

The online survey can be accessed at the following address: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QSVFVKM
 
The contractant encourage us to forward the link to this survey, as quickly as possible, to our national members and/or to any other relevant organisations who may be affected by this consultation but are not members of the Advisory Group on the Food Chain, Animal and Plant Health. The weblink to access the survey is not respondent-specific and can be sent as such to other potential respondents.

The attached document gives an overview of all questions. The section on Botanicals only starts at page 47 and comprises mainly the questions as we have already used them for our preparation. Some are more detailed, but many are more general.
 
The host platform does not allow to save responses and get back to the questionnaire at a later stage. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that the survey is completed only after all replies are ready to be submitted in one session. We will lead this work through the Botanicals Task Force and come back to you with input. It is also recommended that national associations investigate the questions and provide answers from their national perspective. We will as much as possible coordinate and assist in this work in the course of January.

We will come back in the first week of January with our recommendations on how to proceed and coordinate. The deadline for submission is 17 February 2017.
