DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 21/2017

of 3 February 2017

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2018/1755]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1411 of 24 August 2016 refusing to authorise certain health claims made on foods, other than those referring to the reduction of disease risk and to children's development and health (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1412 of 24 August 2016 refusing to authorise a health claim made on foods and referring to the reduction of disease risk (2) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(3)
