Standard 1.1A.1 Food Standards as made
In Australia, this Standard incorporates Standard R7 of the former Australia Food Standards Code, and operates as a transitional alternative standard to Standard 2.9.1 for a period of two years from the commencement of Standard 2.9.1. During this time, infant formula products must comply with Division 2 of this Standard or Standard 2.9.1 of this Code. In New Zealand, this Standard incorporates Standard R7 of the Australian Food Standards Code and Regulation 242 of the New Zealand Food Regulations (1984), and operates to allow Standard R7 and Regulation 242, as transitional alternative standards to Standard 2.9.1 for a period of two years from the commencement of Standard 2.9.1. During this time, infant formula products must comply with Division 2 or 3 of this Standard or Standard 2.9.1 of this Code.

PART 1.1A TRANSITIONAL STANDARDS

 

Standard 1.1A.1

 

Transitional Standard for Infant Formula Products

 

 

Purpose

 

In Australia, this Standard incorporates Standard R7 of the former Australian Food Standards Code, and operates as a transitional alternative standard to Standard 2.9.1 for a period of two years from the commencement of Standard 2.9.1.  During this time, infant formula products must comply with Division 2 of this Standard or Standard 2.9.1 of this Code. 

 

In New Zealand, this Standard incorporates Standard R7 of the Australian Food Standards Code and Regulation 242 of the New Zealand Food Regulations (1984), and operates to allow Standard R7 and Regulation 242, as transitional alternative standards to Standard 2.9.1 for a period of two years from the commencement of Standard 2.9.1.  During this time, infant formula products must comply with Division 2 or 3 of this Standard or Standard 2.9.1 of this Code.

 

‘Stock-in-trade’ provisions contained in Standard 1.1.1 should also be referred to.
