General Food Law Diagnostic

Engage TSG Consulting to undertake an analysis of your business and ensure you are General Food Law ready and compliant before 27 March 2021.

What is the GFL?

In June 2019, the European Parliament formally adopted a new Regulation on the transparency and sustainability of the EU risk assessment model in the food chain, otherwise know as the General Food Law (GFL).

This significant piece of legislation impacts plant protection product regulation by amending the rules on confidential business information and trade secrets. It also puts significant obligations on applicants to register new regulatory studies before they begin.
