Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is reviewing its infant formula regulations, covering a range of issue including composition, labeling and advertising.
FSANZ is currently reviewing Standard 2.9.1 – Infant Formula Products and other standards relating to infant formula, and has prepared a consultation paper covering a range of issues.
It has now opened up the consultation paper to submissions from stakeholders.
“FSANZ has committed to reviewing infant formula regulations and will undertake this work in 2013, but we first want to seek the views of stakeholders on the current regulatory arrangements,” said FSANZ CEO Steve McCutcheon.
“The consultation paper covers a range of issues including how the current standards operate; composition of products and labeling and advertising.”
“The feedback we get as a result of this consultation will help inform the preparation of a formal proposal to review the relevant standards.”
Submissions on the consultation paper close 7 November 2012.
