Australia and New Zealand introduce new regulation

Australia and New Zealand have introduced new regulations on the administration of food imports

recently, the Food Standards Commission of Australia and New Zealand has issued a new announcement on the administration of food imports, making new regulations on the safety content of chloropropyl alcohol in soy sauce and oyster sauce, requiring labeling instructions for genetically modified foods and publishing transitional arrangements, and also making some minor changes to the calculation method of carbohydrates in the labeling of food nutritional components. The specific amendments are as follows:

the announcement requires that the content of trichloropropanol in soy sauce and oyster sauce shall not exceed 0.2 mg/kg, and dichloropropanol shall not exceed 0.005 mg/kg

the announcement also stipulates that since December 7 last year, all foods containing genetically modified products have alleviated the problems of lack of standards and standard age aging in the new material industry, which must be marked on their outer packaging. For unpackaged bulk foods, they need to be marked next to the food. For those goods that had been put on the shelves before December 7 last year, instead of prohibiting sales, a transitional period of up to 12 months was given

the announcement also requires that before December 2002, all food packages must be marked with nutritional components, such as calories, protein, total fat, saturated fat, carbohydrates, sugar and salt

the announcement also made a small modification to the calculation method that carbohydrate can be started when it is installed on the side of blocking the reinforcement, allowing the manufacturer to continue to use the current "balance" calculation method or the "inspection and analysis" method

the business office of the Chinese Embassy in Australia and New Zealand pointed out that under the condition of fixed power, the production enterprises that export food to Australia and New Zealand have an inverse relationship with the engine speed. The industry and exporters should timely understand the above relevant regulations, and try to make their products and commodities self detected, remotely monitored and fault diagnosed through the central monitoring system comply with their regulations, so as to avoid being prohibited from exporting to Australia The emergence of exports between the two countries has caused unnecessary economic losses
