Do you want to offer food supplements for the Belgian market via bol.com? Then your organisation must be registered with the FASFC (FAVV in Dutch) with the relevant distribution authorisation.
Guidelines in Belgium
If your organisation operates in the Belgian food chain and has a warehouse in Belgium, it has to be registered with the Food Agency. This includes offering of notified food supplements.
Notified food supplements
Would you like to sell food supplements in Belgium? Please note that you can only sell notified food supplements. If you want to offer food supplements items that are currently not yet listed as notified with us, you can send a list of these EANs including notification numbers to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will check the list and if the notifications are in order, you can start with offering this range. We will start working on your application straight away, so you start selling these items as soon as possible. It could, however, take up to 2 weeks to process your application due the manual work that’s required in this process.
You can register your organisation with the FASFC here.
Offering food supplements in Belgium with a warehouse in the Netherlands
You don’t need a FASFC registration if you have a Dutch company with a warehouse only in the Netherlands. If you want to offer food supplements in Belgium, you can apply for selling rights to sell food supplements in Belgium without providing a FASFC registration, by showing that your company is based in the Netherlands. However, you may only sell notified dietary supplements in Belgium.
How will we assess your application at bol.com?
In order to offer notified dietary supplements to Belgian customers, you must be able to prove that you are officially registered with the FASFC or that your company is established in the Netherlands. For this, we need your FASFC registration number or business address.
