Technical Regulation for Older Infants and Young Children Food

This draft technical regulation is concerned with the requirements that must be met in foods mainly manufactured from cereals, and other foods intended for older infants and young children as a complementary food starting from the age of six months until the age of three years. This standard does not apply to manufactured substitutes for breast milk.

In 11 January 2019, Saudi Arabia notified WTO (SPS) about this Technical Regulation (G/SPS/N/SAU/387). In this technical regulation, Saudi Arabia inserted an updated draft with modifications in the:

-         Definitions;

-         Food additives requirements (flavours);

-         Labelling requirements;

-         Information of utilization.
