On 17 April 2019, the French authorities decided, as a precaution, to ban the placing on the market of foodstuffs (including food supplements) containing titanium dioxide (E171) from 1 January 2020.

ban of titanium dioxide (E 171) from the 1rst January 2020

This decision follows the new opinion of ANSES (French scientific evaluation agency) published on 15 April 2019 highlighting the lack of scientific data to remove the uncertainties on the safety of the additive E171 (consisting of particles of titanium dioxide (TiO2) especially in nanoparticulate form). ANSES reiterates its recommendations for data to characterize the physicochemical forms of E171 and additional toxicological data on the potential effects related to their ingestion.

Under these conditions, in accordance with the provisions of Article 53 of the French law “Agriculture and Food” published on 1 November 2018 and the announcement made by Bruno Le Maire on 11 January 2019, an order suspending the placing on the market of foodstuffs containing additive E171 from 1 January 2020 has been signed and will be published shortly.

As the additive E171 is authorized at European Union level, this order will have to be notified to the European Commission and the other Member States, which will meet within 10 days to examine this measure.

We will keep you informed of the answer of the European Authorities, however we recommend to study as soon as possible reformulation solutions to change this additive for the French market.

Following a request from UK, on 10 April 2019, the European Council agreed to a further extension to allow for the ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement by both Parties.

Such an extension should last as long as necessary and, in any event, no longer than 31 October 2019. The European Council also recalled that, under Article 50, the Withdrawal Agreement may enter into force on an earlier date, should the Parties complete their respective ratification procedures before 31 October 2019.

 

Brexit: further extension until 31 October 2019 at the latest

 

Consequently, the withdrawal should take place on the first day of the month following the completion of the ratification procedures.

One consequence is that the United Kingdom has to hold elections to the European Parliament in accordance with applicable Union law.

Anses recommendations on products with glucosamine and chondroitin

 

In a scientific opinion published in March 2019, Anses recommends that the following population groups should not consume food supplements with glucosamine or chondroitin sulfate:

  • Diabetic or pre-diabetic individuals, as well as those who are asthmatic or are treated with vitamin K antagonists (VKA).
  • People with a food allergy to crustaceans or insects (glucosamine-based food supplements only).
  • People on sodium, potassium or calcium-restricted diets, as these supplements can be an important source of these elements.
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as children, due to insufficient data on the safety of these products.

ANSES recommends that measures be taken by manufacturers to better inform consumers about the risks associated with the consumption of these food supplements by these specific populations.

It is possible that the French Authorities (DGCCRF) will recommend the labelling of warnings according to this scientific opinion.

The European Council (Article 50) agreed on Thursday 21 March to extend the UK’s departure date to 22 May 2019, provided the Withdrawal Agreement is approved by the House of Commons (UK) by 29 March 2019 at the latest.

However the withdrawal agreement was rejected a third time last Friday by the House of Commons (UK) by 344 votes against 286.

The United Kingdom must now indicate to the European Council before 12 April 2019 a way forward. European Council President Donald Tusk called a special European Council on 10 April.

A UK exit from the EU with “no deal” on 12 April 2019 is now a likely scenario. In that case, the United Kingdom will become a third country and Union law will cease to apply in the United Kingdom. There will be no transition period.

Brexit: third negative UK vote on the withdrawal agreement

Since December 2017, the European Commission has been preparing for a “no-deal” scenario.

Following a request by Prime Minister Theresa May, the European Council (Article 50) agreed on Thursday 21 March to extend the UK’s departure date to 22 May 2019, provided the Withdrawal Agreement is approved by the House of Commons (UK) by 29 March 2019 at the latest.

In that scenario, most of the legal effects of Brexit will apply as of 1 January 2021, i.e. after a transition period of 21 months, the terms of which are set out in the draft Withdrawal Agreement.

Brexit

However, if the Withdrawal Agreement is not approved by the House of Commons this week, the European Council has agreed to an extension until 12 April 2019. In that scenario, the United Kingdom would be expected to indicate a way forward before this date.

While the European Union continues to hope that it will not be the case, this means that if the Withdrawal Agreement is not ratified by Friday 29 March, a “no-deal” scenario may occur on 12 April 2019.  In a “no-deal” scenario, the UK will become a third country without any transitionary arrangements. All EU law will cease to apply to the UK from that moment onwards. There will be no transition period, as provided for in the Withdrawal Agreement.

 

Since December 2017, the European Commission has been preparing for a “no-deal” scenario.
