Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) today notified all stakeholders that a revised version of the Food Standards Code has now come into effect.
There is no transition period between the old and the new version of the Code.
FSANZ Chief Executive Officer, Steve McCutcheon, said the Code had been revised so it more closely aligns with food Acts in Australian states and territories and in New Zealand.
“While the Code looks a lot different, the changes are relatively minor in nature,” Mr McCutcheon said.
“All industry stakeholders will benefit from a clearer, easier to follow Food Standards Code.”
The new version of the Code can be viewed on the FSANZ website.
