This is to update you on the fact that Italy adopted its contested law requiring companies to indicate on the label the name and address of the production facility.

As you remember, we submitted comments asking the Commission to oppose to this measure, but given that the measure only applies to products produced in Italy, the Commission let it pass.

10.8.2017 Commission Decision: Cranberry not to be considered as Medical Device

This is to inform you that today the decision of the Commission was published, specifying that products containing proanthocyanidins (PAC) present in cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) and presented to prevent or treat cystitis, cannot be registered as medical device any longer. This follows an opinion of the European Medicines Agency on 22 July 2016 to the effect that the principal intended action of this group of products is achieved probably by pharmacological means as metabolites of PAC and other constituents of cranberry exhibit most probably a pharmacological activity and that a mechanical mode of action of PAC is highly unlikely.

As you know, after the claims legislation came into force, a number of claims for these products have been introduced but received negative EFSA opinions. Certain companies subsequently registered their products successfully as medical devices. This possibility is now blocked and products presented for the treatment or prevention of cystitis will need to be registered as medicinal product. Cranberry food supplements can obviously remain on the market, but unfortunately so far, no health claim has been approved or been put on hold.

10.7.2017 Italy's formal adoption of the Belfrit list notified to the Commission

This is to inform you that Italy has notified its new plants decree to the European Commission. This is the last step in the formal adoption of the BELFRIT list by Italy.

As you know, in 2014, Italy modified its plants decree by including the BELFRIT list plants next to the Italian list in two annexes:

Annex 1 including 1212 plants
Annex 1.bis (BELFRIT) includes 1037 plants of which 122 new for Italy

Today’s notification is the merging of both list, after a period in which companies could provide data and an assessment of the plants for which data have been submitted.

The draft decree is only available in Italian for the time being. An English translation is expected soon.
