Chile – Consultation on microbiological criteria for treenuts

The following proposed amendment to the Food Sanitary Regulations (articles 169, 173 and 452) aims to establish microbiological criteria for tree nuts, which are defined under the new table 14.10 of article 173. This clarifies the scope of application of what is indicated in several articles in which reference is made to dried fruits, nuts or others that in the current regulation are used indistinctly to speak of dried or dehydrated fruits, candied dried fruits and tree nuts and peanuts, which leads to confusion.
On the other hand, microbiological criteria are established for tea, mate and herbal infusions, and the nomenclature for the definition of tea species is modified.
