Gaining pre-market approvals for new ingredients and food additives, enzymes and flavourings

In order to contribute to consumers’ health and to allow for the free movement of safe food into their internal markets, government authorities around the world have set up some pre-market authorisation procedures for any new ingredients or substances that may enter their territories. These procedures differ between markets.

Leatherhead’s team of scientists, toxicology and regulatory experts can advise on the data requirements and on the most suitable regulatory route to gain approval of new ingredients or substances at a global level. We can provide support in compiling and submitting applications for pre-market approval for new/GRAS ingredients, food additives, food enzymes and food flavourings.

In addition, Leatherhead’s regulatory team has developed strong links with government authorities in major markets around the world and can therefore, very quickly and independently, contact them or answer any of their queries on pre-market approval dossiers.
