Europe Regulatory Affairs

The Regulatory Affairs department at Bell ensures that all products and raw materials fulfil the applicable judicial regulations, recommendations of industrial associations and specific customer needs. Close cooperation with different industry and government associations insure a timely implementation of all requirements set by European and National authorities.

These requirements include:

  • the examination of flavours and flavour extracts according to European regulations on foodstuffs and IOFI specifications (International Organisation of the Flavour Industry)
  • the examination of flavours and ingredient specialities for Kosher and HALAL suitability

REACH – stands for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals. This new EU regulation centralises and simplifies chemicals legislation throughout Europe and entered into force on 1st of June 2007. The declared aim is to improve the level of knowledge about the dangers and risks that chemicals may pose. Companies are expected to assume even more responsibility for the safe handling of their products. The Federal Authorities here offer a wide range of information about REACH so that small and medium-sized companies can also quickly become familiar with the new rules.
