Food Standard Australian and New Zealand (FSANZ)
Food Standard Australian and New Zealand (FSANZ) is a bi-national Government agency that carries out safety assessments on a case-by-case basis, which means each new genetic modification is assessed individually for its potential impact on the safety of food developed and food standards that cover the food industry in Australia and New Zealand. It also administers the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, which regulates the use of ingredients, processing aids, colorings etc and covers composition of some foods e.g. dairy, meat and beverages as well as standards developed by new technologies such as genetically modified foods. FSANZ is responsible for labeling both packaged and unpackaged food, including specific mandatory warnings or advisory label.
