Food regulatory compliance has become an increasing burden for Food and Beverage industries, in particular those addressing global markets. Thousands of substances restrictions, nutritional limits, Maximum Residue Levels, nutrition and health claims, ingredient and allergen statements as well as product labeling are becoming ever more stringent in several major markets. In order to facilitate the work of regulatory professionals, the Selerant’s RSA team has built a Global Food Additives Database, collecting and monitoring the content of Food Additive legislations for the main markets, allowing our customers to concentrate on strategic regulatory issues. The Regulatory and Scientific experts of Selerant are constantly monitoring the legislation in North America, European Union, China, Hong-Kong, Taiwan and Codex Standards to provide our customers with up-to-date standard libraries.
The Global Food Additives Database contains more than 40.000 records covering North America, Europe, Greater China and Codex Standards. It’s a comprehensive set of regulated substances together with their restrictions for use per product category and per market. The database is designed and structured to be compatible with the DevEX Regulatory framework to provide automated computer-assisted compliance reports. Regulatory data reflect the content of Food Additives legislations in a transparent way, allowing Regulatory managers to easily consult and audit the system by legislative references and substance search tool. Upon amendments of legislation, an updated regulatory pack is automatically delivered to our customers through DevEX and can be easily and rapidly accessible to the different users upon validation. A ready-to-use and up-to-date Decision Support system is thus always available to both expert and non-expert users involved in all stages of the product lifecycle, from product development to marketing of the final product.
The Selerant Database can also be configured to be available in other information and management systems or PLM software and maintained upon legislation amendments.
Our dedicated team is also available for the collection and monitoring of tailored guidelines and rules for different markets.
