ASEAN Guiding Principles for the Use of Additives and Excipients in Health Supplements

At-a-glance: This annex contains a list of additives and excipients that are permitted for use in health supplements and details of restrictions on their use.

Background: There is already an established Codex Alimentarius standard for the use of additives and excipients in health supplements. In order to ensure ASEAN will be aligned with these international standards, it was decided to adopt the existing Codex text in full, as well as any future revisions. Furthermore, pharmaceutical excipients listed in the latest edition of the Handbook of Pharmaceutical Excipients, or any other official pharmacopoeias, will also be permitted.
