HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AC54 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Food Standards: General Principles and Food Standards Modernization (Reopening of Comment Period) 
Abstract:

FDA is reopening the comment period on a proposed rule, issued jointly with USDA/FSIS in 2005, that proposed to establish general principles that would be the first step in modernizing and updating the framework for food standards (including standards of identity, standards of equability, and standards of fill of containers). We are reopening the comment period because of the time that has elapsed since the publication of the proposed rule during which time there have been additional technological advances and other changes in the food industry which could help inform the development of a modernized food standards framework.
