NVWA Simplifies Reporting Guide for Unsafe Food Products

  • 19 January 2024

The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) has recently streamlined the reporting guide for unsafe food products, aiming to assist entrepreneurs in determining the right time to report to the NVWA.

The revised reporting guide provides entrepreneurs with clear guidelines, making it easier to decide when to report to the NVWA. It remains mandatory to report (potentially) unsafe food products at all times, and in cases of doubt regarding a product's safety, a prompt report within 4 hours is crucial.

Enforcement Against Violations

Failure to report (potentially) unsafe food products, or doing so untimely, is considered a violation, prompting strict action from the NVWA. This underscores the importance of a proactive approach by entrepreneurs to ensure food safety. The updated reporting guide is now accessible on the official NVWA website, where entrepreneurs can consult and implement the simplified guidelines.
