Dietary supplements are a particular type of food, although they often resemble medication (pills, capsules, syrups) and as such, they are regulated by the Food Law.
The legal acts regulating supplements can be general – referring to all types of foods, such as General Food Law Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 178/2002) (Dz.U. L 031 z 1.2.2002, s. 1) or specific. At the European level, it is the Directive 2002/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 10 June 2002 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to food supplements.
In Polish law, the definition and rules for placing on the market are regulated by the Act of 25 August 2006 on Food and Nutrition Safety (Dz.U. 2006 r. nr 171, poz. 12250); and by the Regulation of Minister of Health of 9 October 2007 on The Composition and Labeling of Dietary Supplements (Dz.U. 2014. 453 unified text).
