On Wednesday, the 27th of May 2020, the Bundesrat [= Swiss Federal Council] decided to bring the revised Stretto 3 regulations into force per the 1st of July 2020. In terms of food supplements, Stretto 3 signifies major changes in relation to both the maximum levels for vitamins, minerals and other substances as well as to permissible substances. In particular the low maximum zinc level, i.e. 5.3 mg, and the ban on all vitamin A compounds - with the exception of the provitamin a β-carotene - will mean that some formulas will have to be changed. You can find the provisional texts by clicking the following link. On 3rd of June – an adapted transition phase of two years has been published. Products may be produced using the usual formulas and labelling up until the 30th of June 2022. Thereafter, stock will be allowed to be sold off until it runs out.
