Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has called for submissions on a minor proposal to make minor changes to the Food Standards Code.
FSANZ Chief Executive Officer Steve McCutcheon said the proposal sought to correct typographical errors, inconsistencies and formatting issues, and to update references.
“The proposed amendments are all relatively minor in nature. No potential public health and safety concerns have been identified,” Mr McCutcheon said.
“FSANZ is consulting on the proposed changes with government agencies and is notifying stakeholders. Members of the public are welcome to provide comments.”
All FSANZ decisions on proposals are notified to ministers responsible for food regulation who can decide to ask for a review or agree that the standard should become law.
The closing date for submissions is 16 December 2016.
