HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AI79 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Food Standards; General Principles and Food Standards Modernization 

This proposed rule would amend FDA’s and FSIS’s regulations to establish principles for persons to use in preparing food standards petitions and that the agencies will use in considering whether to establish, revise, or eliminate food standards, either based on a petition or on the agency’s own initiative. If finalized, the proposed rule would simplify and modernize food standards and continue to ensure that food standards will protect the public and promote honesty and fair dealing in the interest of consumers. The proposed rule also incorporates principles to support flexibility and nutrition advances in food production, when appropriate, and to consider harmonization with international food standards.
