Regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011
Act now - 1WorldSync will assist you to comply!

Is your organization prepared to implement the new standards?

Regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011 is a regulation put forth from the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL that will go into effect on December 13, 2014 to better inform consumers on product components when making purchasing decisions. The regulation will require data suppliers and data recipients in 27 EU countries to provide consumers access to product information, such as nutritional value, ingredients and instructions, prior to purchasing pre-packed food products through distance and online sale.


There is no time to waste! If your organization is not compliant, it will result in the prohibition of sales:

  • If the pre-packed food does not fulfill the regulation’s requirements in-store or online, the food cannot be sold
  • Even small changes to ingredients may result in the product needing a new item number (GTIN - Global Trade Item Number)
  • If there is a change in the product information, this must be communicated through a new GTIN or additional information
