      Italy to UK Import Legalities - Rules and Regulations for Importing Supplements

      I have a great opportunity to import some bodybuilding supplements from Italy to the UK. Are there any restrictions or legal issues I should be aware of?

      If the products contain any synthetic ingredients, your supplements could be branded as a drug and are subject to some additional regulations. If the ingredients are all natural, then the supplements are considered a food. I will try to cover both for you.

      For supplements with synthetic ingredients (subject to drug or medicine categorization):
      • Medicines require a license, also known as a marketing authorisation, in order to manufacture and distribute the product. Your manufacturer should be able to provide the proof of license.
      • Any product that proclaims to cure, prevent or treat a disease are considered medicines.
      • The Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) would be the place to contact for authorisations or licenses MHRA

      For supplements with all natural or herbal ingredients (subject to food categorization):
      • Proper labelling is required as specified in the Food Labelling Regulations, Trade Descriptions Act, and the Food Safety Act.
      • All ingredients must be listed as part of the labelling.
      • All foods must be considered safe for consumption.
      • Cannot be falsely or misleadingly labelled.

      Hopefully this information will help you.
