The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reopening the comment period on a 2005 proposed rule to establish a set of general principles for the agency to use when considering whether to establish, revise or eliminate a food standard of identity. The original proposed rule was jointly published with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The FDA is reopening the comment period to receive new data, information, or further comments only on the FDA-specific aspects of the 2005 proposed rule, including 13 general principles for food standards modernization. The agency will continue to engage with the USDA regarding standards of identity modernization principles and any potential future actions regarding finalizing the proposed rule.
