Abstract
The overall aim is to ensure the effective functioning of the internal market in relation to smoke flavourings used or intended to be used in foodstuffs, whilst providing the basis for securing a high level of protection of human health and consumers interests. To this end, there are hereby laid down: (a) a Community procedure for the evaluation and authorization of primary smoke condensates and primary tar fractions for use as such in or on foods or in the production of derived smoke flavourings for use in or on foods; and (b) a Community procedure for the establishment of a list of primary smoke condensates and primary tar fractions authorized to the exclusion of all others in the Community and their conditions of use in or on foods. The use of smoke flavourings in or on foods shall only be authorized if it is sufficiently demonstrated that it does not present risks to human health and it does not mislead consumers. Article 7 regulates the submission of application for authorization. Article 13 sets forth a traceability system. Article 17 lays down inspection and control measures.
