Deadline for CBD novel food applications approaching

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is reminding the CBD industry that they must submit novel food applications in sufficient time for validation, ahead of the 31 March 2021 deadline.

CBD products are not currently authorised so the deadline was imposed to move the industry towards compliance with novel food regulations.

For more information see the FSA press release.
