The updated version of the Scientific Opinion on the update of the tolerable upper intake level (UL) for vitamin D for infants taking into account the comments received was discussed and adopted at the NDA Plenary meeting on 28 June 2018, and is published in the EFSA Journal (EFSA Journal 2018;16(8):536).
