of 21 March 2006

amending the Annex to Directive 2001/15/EC as regards the inclusion of certain substances

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/398/EEC of 3 May 1989 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to foodstuffs intended for particular nutritional uses(1), and in particular Article 4(2) thereof,

After consulting the European Food Safety Authority,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Directive 2001/15/EC of 15 February 2001 on substances that may be added for specific nutritional purposes in foods for particular nutritional uses(2) specifies certain categories of substances and mentions for each of them the chemical substances that may be used in the manufacture of foodstuffs for particular nutritional uses.

(2) Those chemical substances that have been evaluated by the European Food Safety Authority (hereafter ‘the Authority’) and have received a favourable scientific evaluation should be included in the Annex to Directive 2001/15/EC.

(3) Favourable scientific evaluation for some vitamins and mineral substances has been recently given and made public by the Authority.

(4) It is appropriate to replace the category heading ‘folic acid’ in order to take account of the inclusion of other forms of folate in the Annex to Directive 2001/15/EC.

(5) Directive 2001/15/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6) The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,
