One of the charges of the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition is to assure that the use of food ingredients and color additives is safe. The authority for this mission is derived from the 1958 food additive and 1960 color additive amendments to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Towards this end, CFSAN evaluates new petitions to determine if substances are considered safe for addition to the food supply. When a petition for a food ingredient or color additive is approved, a regulation identifying the conditions of use is published in the Federal Register. For information about additional food ingredient review programs in the Office of Food Additive Safety, consult the Inventory of Effective Premarket Notifications for Food Contact Substances and the Summary of all GRAS Notices.
The following listing documents the Final rules issued by the Office of Food Additive Safety during calendar year 2002. The exact date of the Publication and the Federal Register citation is listed along with other identifying information that can be found in the published Federal Register document. A link to the Government Printing Office Web site below the listing provides access to Federal Register documents.
