Australian food regulatory authority, Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), announced today that, despite it already being 10 years in the making, further consultation will be taking place on a revised draft Standard for Nutrition Health and Related Claims (Standards 1.2.7 – Proposal P293).
The draft Standard will regulate nutrition content claims, health claims, endorsements, cause-related marketing and dietary information that appear on either food labels or in advertising of food for retail sale.
FSANZ said that although the precise dates are not yet available, it is expected that consultation will commence in late January 2012 and be for a four-week period.
Speaking at the FoodLegal Symposium “Healthy Bodies of Law” in October 2011, Dean Stockwell the General Manager of Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) and Chair of its Standards Development Advisory Committee said Australia and New Zealand should not expect the official food standard until at least 2012.
