Brazil – Food and packaging registration and post-registration amendment for public consultation

The National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA in Portuguese) opened the deadline to submit contributions to the Public Consultation (CP) 1113/2022, which deals with the proposed Resolution of the Collegiate Council of Administration (RDC) on the regularization of food and packaging under the competence of the National Health Surveillance System (SNVS). The proposal provides for changes in the registration and post-registration procedures, in addition to establishing notification for some categories, with a view to modernizing the regularization of these products. The deadline for comments and suggestions is December 13.

CP 1.113 is part of the revision process of RDC 22 and 23, both from 2000, which define the current regularization procedures for regulated food and packaging in the health area, and of RDC 27/2010, which provides for categories of exempted food and packaging and those requiring registration.
