The main changes are:

National programme requirements have been set for businesses carrying out:
• Pasteurisation
• Acidification
• Fermentation
• Concentration
• Drying
• thoroughly cooking and other processes.

Other processes, which fall outside national programmes, have also been identified. Businesses wanting to carry out cold plasma processing, electromagnetic processing, high pressure processing, hydrodynamic processing and ultrasonification will need to operate under a Food Control Plan.

Another change is that low acid canning requirements have also moved from Regulations to the Food Notice.
