Health Warning Statements on prescribed Alcoholic Beverages

Food Standards Australia New Zealand will soon gazette mandatory changes to Alcoholic Beverages labelling that requires a “pregnancy warning mark” in the form of a pictogram and statement. Once gazetted there will be a 24month transition period.

Full details of the proposal P1015 “Pregnancy warning labels on alcoholic beverages” can be found here. The changes will be listed in Standard 2.7.1 to the Food Standards Code (Labelling of alcoholic beverages and foods containing alcohol). Contact consulting@decernis.com for more details.
