such use of fungicides containing benomyl which may cause residues in food,
and 2) to have reservations towards such use of wood preservatives containing
benomyl which can cause exposition to the workers.

Switzerland. The Switzerland Federal Bureau of Public Health has proposed
a revision of the 1936 foodstuffs ordinance, including revision of the defi-
nitions and ingredients and updating of labeling requirements of the following
products: cheese and cheese products, butter, margarine, edible fat mixtures,
mayonnaise, fruit juices, syrups, lemonade, pectin, jams and jellies, beer and
non-alcoholic beer, biscuits and rusks. Where possible, the CODEX Alimentarius
requirements have been taken into consideration.

to replace Articles 62 to 79 of the Food and Drug Regulations of 1973. These
proposed regulations update existing standards on bakery products, and include
definitions and a positive list of components and additives.

on datemarking of food. The proposal covers datemarking standards for short

foods (dairy and meat products; bread), and other foods to be datemarked on
a voluntary basis.
