The Minister of Economy and Industry has declared the requirements of 97 mandatory food standards as voluntary and changed the mandatory sections in additional 17 food standards, following the legal power given by the "Protection of public health law (Food) 5776-2015". These declarations will enter into force gradually between 1 January 2023 and 1 August 2026.

This declaration aims to remove unnecessary obstacles to trade, facilitate it, and lower trade barriers. The food products covered by these standards are already covered by the scope of other food Regulations and are enforced by the Ministry of Health.
