The following communication, received on 13 June 2012, is being circulated at the request of the Delegation of Canada.
|Regulations Amending the Food and Drug Regulations (1635 – Food Additives)|
| Health Canada has received submissions from industry requesting that the Food and Drug Regulations (the Regulations) be amended to enable new uses of the following food additives.
Interim Marketing Authorizations (IMAs) were issued to permit the immediate use of these food additives, while the regulatory process was undertaken to formally amend the Regulations. They were published in the “Government Notices” section of theCanada Gazette, Part I, as follows:
– 6 October 2007, for acesulfame-potassium and sucralose as sweeteners in standardized canned fruit, including canned apples, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, peaches, pears and pineapple, and in unstandardized canned fruit, including canned fruit cocktail and tropical salad, at a maximum level of use for acesulfame-potassium and sucralose of 0.007% and 0.025%, respectively, (notified as G/SPS/N/CAN/302); and
– 13 June 2009, for sucralose as a sweetener in pickles at a maximum level of use of 0.015% (notified as G/SPS/N/CAN/391).
The evaluation of the available data supports the safety and efficacy of these food additives in the above specified uses. Therefore, the Regulations are amended to permit the use of the above noted food additives as described.
These Regulations entered into force on 17 May 2012.
