Royal Decree on the use of the Nutri-Score logo

This royal decree establishes the rules relating to the use of the Nutri-Score logo, which has been registered at European level with EUIPO (the European Union Intellectual Property Office), and sets the conditions for its use. The Nutri-Score is a voluntary nutritional logo for foodstuffs, which was developed and implemented by the French authorities and which Belgium would like to adopt as it stands, without any amendments to the system criteria.

In accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2011 on the provision of food information to consumers and Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006 on nutrition and health claims made on foods, the Nutri-Score must be used in accordance with the procedures established in the specifications presented in the annex to this decree.
