VARIATIONS TO THE FOOD STANDARDS CODE

 

(AMENDMENT NO. 60)

 

1.           Preamble

 

The variations set forth in the Schedule below are variations to the Food Standards Code (hereinafter called 'the Code') which was published by the National Health and Medical Research Council in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette, No. P 27, on 27 August 1987, and which has been varied from time to time.

 

The Schedule contains variations adopted by the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Council in April and May 2002.

 

These variations are published pursuant to section 32 of the Australia New Zealand Food Authority Act 1991.

 

2.           Citation

 

These variations may be collectively known as Amendment No. 60 to the Code.

 

3.           Commencement

 

These variations commence on the date of gazettal.

 

4.           Correction of Typographical Error

 

Amendment 59 published on 9 May 2002 contained the following typographical error -

 

·                On page 5 (Item [3.1]) - under the definition for ‘technological function’, the second last and last lines should read ‘manner which suggests that the organoleptic qualities have not been altered, other than through the process.’.

 

·                On page 6 (Item [3.5]) - clause 11(a)(iii) should read ‘United States Code of Federal Regulations, 1996, 21 CFR Part 172.515; or’.

 

Note:  These variations were published in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. FSC 2 on 29 June 2002.
