Novel Foods Regulatory and Compliance Document
Confirmation of Inclusion on the Food Standards Agency Regulated Products Public List
Dona Sofia Rum and Cola
This document confirms that the product listed below has is included or has been confirmed to be included by the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) on the Regulated Products Public List. The novel food status of CBD products was confirmed in January 2019, and the European Commission updated their Novel Foods Catalogue to reflect this change. The catalogue itself has not got legal status. The European Commission uses this tool to show the decisions made on novel food status and it is these decisions that have legal status. This makes it clear that CBD extract and isolate products are legally novel foods. In accordance with guidance issued by the FSA Businesses need to submit novel food authorisation applications by 31 March 2021. After this date, only products which were on the market at the time of our announcement on CBD (13 February 2020) and for which the FSA has received an application which is subsequently validated or agreed as sufficiently progressing towards validation will be allowed to remain on the market.
