Food Supplements Regulatory Framework in Portugal

According to the EU and local regulations the responsibility for the safety of food supplement  products lies with the food business operator placing the product on the market.

The national transposition of Directive 2002/46/CE for food supplements is DL no. 136/2003, amended and republished on DL no. 118/2015 which establishes harmonized lists of the vitamins and minerals substances used in the manufacture of food supplements and the labelling requirements for these products.

Substances without a history of safe use in the EU before 1997 are assessed under Regulation (EC) No 2015/2283 on Novel Food (e.g. CBD products).
