Australia/New Zealand Safety Assessments

In a November 2018 update, Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) joined the chorus of government bodies highlighting BPA safety, stating that “the overwhelming weight of scientific opinion is that there is no health or safety issue at the levels people are exposed to.”

This statement is significant because FSANZ is a bi-national government agency that develops and administers the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, which provides a comprehensive set of safety requirements for foods in these countries.
