Title, number of pages and language(s) of the notified document Proposal P1050 Pregnancy warning labels on alcoholic beverages: Assessment Report
Resumo em portugues Propõe Regulamento Técnico que altera o Código de Normas Alimentares para exigir rótulos obrigatórios relativos ao alerta no caso de gravidez nas bebidas alcoólicas embaladas e vendidas na Austrália e na Nova Zelândia.
Resumo original The proposal considers changing the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code) to require mandatory pregnancy warning labels on packaged alcoholic beverages sold in Australia and New Zealand. FSANZ undertook an assessment and developed a proposed variation to the Code. Standards affected are: Standard 1.1.2 Definitions used throughout the Code; Standard 1.2.1 Requirements to have labels or otherwise provide information, and; 2.7.1 Labelling of alcoholic beverages and food containing alcohol.  The proposed variation requires a pregnancy warning label on most packaged alcoholic beverages with more than 1.15% alcohol by volume with prescribed legibility and format for the label. The pregnancy warning label includes a specified pictogram, signal words "Health Warning" and statement "Any amount of alcohol can harm your baby". The location of the warning label is not prescribed. A 2 year transition period is provided, with an exemption for alcoholic beverages packaged and labelled before the end of the transition period from having to carry the pregnancy warning label.
