New Zealand has joint food standards for labelling and composition with Australia. This page has amendments to the joint food standards Notice. You can also download amendments to the now-revoked Food Standards 2002.
Adoption of joint Food Standards
On 26 February 2018, New Zealand adopted the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, and all its amendments, as joint food standards (except for the Australia-specific chapters and standards).
This was done under the Adoption of the Joint Food Standards under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code Notice. This supersedes a 2002 standard which initially adopted the Code.
Australian Amendment No. 177 and 178. Allows for a genetically modified rice line; genetically modified canola line; and the use of an enzyme as a processing aid. Excludes Amendment No. 169 for hemp seed products which requires change to NZ law before it can be adopted.
