This Standard is available for inspection and copies can be obtained free of charge from the Food and Nutrition Section of the Ministry of Health, 133 Molesworth Street, Wellington. Copies of the material incorporated by reference in this standard, i.e., the Australian Food Standards Code, Amendments No. 32 and No. 33, are also available for inspection by members of the public, free of charge, at the same address. This amendment incorporates by reference Amendment No. 32 and Amendment No. 33 to the Australian Food Standards Code. The effect of the changes is as follows: to include additional food additive code numbers and class names to permit sodium stearoyl lactylate in desserts and imitation creams to permit neohesperidin dihydrochalcone as a flavour to permit ascorbic acid, erythorbic acid and their sodium salts as antioxidants in electrolyte drinks and soft drinks to change the labelling requirements for aspartame to provide a warning statement for phenylketonurics to include a specification for glycine to permit new sources of lipases (enzymes that are processing aids) to add whipped thickened cream as a product category to permit flavourings in coffee and related products a variation to the sunset clause on the permission which allows the sale in Australia of food imported from New Zealand which complies with relevant New Zealand food standards. This change is needed because of the later than anticipated introduction of the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Agreement. The New Zealand Food Standard 1996, Amendment No. 2, will come into force on the 28th day after the date of this notification.
