Urgent action on the UK formula regulations

If you want to help strengthen the UK Infant Formula and Follow-on Formula Regulations, then you have another opportunity to do so by sending a message to the latest government consultation. Just go to:

The Government is consulting on Guidance Notes to accompany the Regulations.

There is not a lot to say here about the detail of the Guidance Notes. They are constrained by the Regulations, which regular readers of this blog will know, are little better than the Regulations they replace.

However, the Government has promised to review the Regulations and Guidance Notes during the first year of operation, so that is the focus of our draft message. The review needs to be broad enough and serious enough to ensure that action will be taken to strengthen the Regulations if the type of practices we expose are not stopped.

Find out more details on the campaign page. All you have to do is enter your email, name and country, read the message (modify it if you want) and click submit. See:

The Regulations are tied up in court at the moment, but this consultation continues for another week, so please do send your message.
