Yes, that means the restrictions on vitamins and supplements came into force throughout al EU nations on August 1,2005. However many concessions have been made. For a start, the justices have decided that any nutrient that's already consumed as part of our regular diets doesn't have to be included on the Positive List. They have also decided that the burden of proof should fal on the regulator, who would have to prove that a nutrient wasn't safe. It's enough for a manufacturer to submit an ingredient to the Positive List, and then it's down to the regulator to disal ow it, and give a ful explanation of its decision. As a result, the UK's Food Standards Agency said that it doesn't know of one supplement that would be banned under the revised directive. The next hurdle is determining what is a 'safe upper limit' for vitamins and supplements. The danger is that the EU may, by default, adopt the Codex guidelines, which are being shaped by German and French delegates If they succeed, we wil see levels drop dramatical y in The danger
