Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is considering a number of changes to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, regulations that govern the sale of food sold in Australia and New Zealand.
Proposed changes include the approval of a food additive for wine, amendments to levels of chemical residues present in food, the addition of lutein to infant formula, a new genetically modified rice variety, and amended maximum residue limits for chemical residues in food.
FSANZ operates one of the most transparent standard-setting processes in the world, with industry, public health professionals, government agencies and consumers encouraged to access and comment on all scientific evaluations and reasons for making regulatory decisions.
Details and assessments of the proposed changes listed above can be found on the FSANZ website.
Submissions close on November 14th, 2007.
