JHCI executive director Melanie Ruffell said the organisation was eager to provide advice on compliance with the new rules, expected to be implemented in September.
"It is a natural fit for us," she said. "We are an information service and are able to provide guidance and advice for our members."
Ruffell also revealed that the JHCI was discussing a potential tie-up with the Food Standards Agency on the new regulations.
Last week the JHCI hosted a seminar to give food manufacturers the latest information on the proposed new rules, which will see the establishment of a EU-wide register for food health claims.
