New legislation on additives.

Under EU legislation, food additives must be authorised before they can be used in foods. Authorisation by risk managers follows a thorough safety assessment carried out by EFSA.
Once authorised, these substances are compiled on an EU list of permitted food additives, which also specifies their conditions of use. They must also comply with approved purity criteria laid down in Regulation EU 231/2012.
