 With trans fatty acids posing a public health risk to consumers, the Commission has adopted a proposal which would limit the content of trans fat, other than naturally occurring trans fat, in all foods to 2 grams per 100 gram fat. Following a Commission report published in 2015 considering the potential mitigation measures for the overall reduction of trans fat intakes, it was considered a legal limit on industrial trans fats in foods was the most effective means for the protection of consumer health. The report showed that legal limits in the pioneer country Denmark had significantly lowered the levels of trans fats intakes. The measure would override national initiatives which had been adopted or were in the make by various other EU member states. The date of application of the ban is not yet known. It is currently notified to the WTO as technical barrier to trade allowing other countries to comment on the anticipated rules. The proposal however – provisionally - instigates that foods not complying with the new rules may be marketed until 1 April 2021.

EU Commission Proposal - COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) …/…of XXX amending Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1925/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards trans fat, other than trans fat naturally occurring in animal fat, in foods intended for the final consumer
