Olive oil (HS code(s): 1509); (ICS code(s): 67.200.10)

SI 191 - Olive oil; (7 page(s), in Hebrew)

Revision of the Mandatory Standard SI 191 dealing with olive oil. This standard adopts the International Olive Council's document COI/T.15/NC No 3/ Rev.15: November 2019 called "Trade Standard Applying to Olive Oils and Olive Pomace Oils" with a few changes that appear in the standard's Hebrew section. The major differences between the old version and this new revised draft standard are as follow:

  • Removes from the Hebrew section a few national deviations relating to the "median of defect" in refined and mixed olive oils;
  • Deletes remark b from section 10.1.4, which required that "where the source of the olive oil in not from the European Union but is traded by them, it shall be marked by the country where the olives are grown";
  • Updates the marking requirements detailed in section 10.3 to fit also the requirements of the Mandatory Standard SI 1145 "Labelling of pre-packaged food";
  • Updates the references to more advanced test methods in sections 11.4 and 11.12;
  • Adds to Annex 1 a reference to lighting oil.

All sections and sub-sections of the new revised standard will be announced mandatory.

Both the old standard and the new revised standard will apply for at least two years from the entry into force of the notified revision. During this time products may be tested according to either.
