Energy drinks are comprehensively regulated.

Energy drinks, their ingredients and their labelling are regulated within the European Union. For example, at EU level, the EU Labelling Directive 2000/13/EC and since 13 December 2014 the Food Information to Consumers Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 regulate the labelling of caffeine containing beverages. These provisions provide for advisory warnings and information across the EU, based on caffeine content, which enables consumers to make informed choices.
