Labelling requirements for Vitamins supplements


How can I find out the labelling requirements for Vitamins supplements to be exported into Russia and Spain?

Also what would the VAT status be for vitamin supplements in Spain? As general VAT is 21% but for food it’s 10% and I am unsure how vitamins are classified in Spain.

Any advise would be most welcome.

If you need any help on the language side of things, feel free to let me know!

Bets of luck with it!



Hi Tracey

You need specialist compliance advice for the two markets for the labelling aspects, Spain will have broadly similar requirements to the UK, but Russia has a complex and very different legal framework. Happy to discuss further.

Kindest regards



dear Mike
I have asked your local Enterprise Europe Network team in Nottingham to get in touch with you about this. They should be able to help you regarding Spain.
You can also get in touch with them directly at Nottingham Chamber of Commerce:
