FSANZ calls for comment for GM enzyme processing aid

by Andrew Thomson on June 12, 2020

FSANZ is calling for comment on an application to allow a new type of processing aid from a genetically modified alpha-amylase enzyme.

FSANZ has undertaken a safety assessment and found that there are no health and safety concerns associated with using this new source of alpha-amylase. To have your say, visit the FSANZ Call for Comment page. Submissions will close at 6 pm (Canberra time) on 9 July 2020. Submissions will be published to the FSANZ website as soon as possible after the end of the public comment period.

FSANZ will consider all feedback received through this submission process before deciding whether to approve the application, with the decision notified to ministers responsible for food regulation, who can ask for a review or agree that the standard should become law.
