Singapore Food Agency: Consultation on General Labelling Requirements for Prepacked Food


Nov 03, 2020

SFA is reviewing the labelling requirements of prepacked food products to better facilitate the traceability and the import and export of prepacked food, as well as to enable consumers make informed choices at point of purchase and before consuming the prepacked food.

This consultation paper is divided into 4 parts (Parts A, B, C and D), with 9 questions.

As part of the review, SFA proposes to amend the labelling requirements for prepacked food in following regulations under the Singapore Food Regulations (hereafter known as “SFR”).

a.         Regulation 5 – General requirements for labelling

b.         Regulation 6 – Exemptions from regulation 5

c.         Regulation 9 – Prohibition on false or misleading statements, etc., on labels

d.         Regulation 9B – Limitations on making particular statements or claims on labels.

Submission must reach SFA no later than 6.00pm, 20 November 2020
