FOOD Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has released details of changes it is considering to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
The changes include an exemption of an allergen warning for isinglass in beer and wine, a review of the novel food standard, the use of medium chain triglycerides in infant formula, two new processing aids, and amendments to some maximum residue limits.
Background information on all the proposed changes can be found on the FSANZ website. Items at initial assessment are at an early stage of the process.
Those at draft assessment have undergone a scientific risk evaluation and a draft standard is available for scrutiny and comment.
Normally, matters at draft assessment have already received one round of public comment.
FSANZ analyses each submission – including any scientific information that may be supplied – and responds to issues raised by submitters in its final report on a food standard matter.
