Regulatory Labelling Workshop

Limited seats available

FACTS is hosting a 2-day workshop providing an

in-depth understanding of the various regulations relating to the labelling of foodstuffs.

The varied regulatory environment in South Africa, means we need a broad understanding of what regulations may be applicable, where to find them and how to apply them. This is done with the foundation of R.146 (Regulations relating to the labelling and advertising of foodstuffs), coupled with information on regulations from all the various authorities.

This year we will be including new advances such as:

  • New tools for easy regulatory reference
  • Overview of the compulsory specifications under DT
  • Overview of the Liquor product standards Act

Guest lectures from Janusz Luterek including:

  • Copyright laws and how they apply to foodstuffs
  • CBD and it’s legal place

As this is not clearly defined in the current Regulations Relating to the Labelling and Advertising of Foodstuffs (R.146/2010, as amended), it is important to understand when an ingredient meets the terms for being called a ‘processing aid’ and no longer needs to be labelled.As the answer is not obvious in the regulations, one must dig a little deeper and look at the exemptions, as stated in regulation 54 of R.146; here we find the following, which may help us...
