EuropeActive welcomed to the CEN WORKING GROUP 453 on "Nutritional Supplements compatible with doping prevention"

The European Committee for Standardization (CEN) is a public standard organisation whose mission is to foster the economy of the EU in global trading, the welfare of European citizens and the environment by providing an efficient infrastructure to interested parties for the development, maintenance and distribution of coherent sets of standards and specifications.

EuropeActive have been approved to be a liaison organisation for the new CEN Working Group 453 which will develop European standards for food and supplements used by sports people.

The process is being led by the French national standards organisation AFNOR and the first meeting will be in the first half of September. EuropeActive supports the need to harmonize the European rules regarding production and labelling for food supplements for sports people in order to reduce the misleading consumption of those substances.
