Switzerland – The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and the IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission) have updated the 2018 Guide 14 to ensure that food manufacturing details are more accessible to a wider range of consumers.

In the interest of protecting vulnerable consumers, more information will be made easier to gather. The new ISO/IEC Guide 14 now mentions the use of QR codes and RFID tag technologies to identify contents. More changes to the content of the document includes environmental concerns, such as how a package is recycled.

In light of various corporate information leaks, the ISO/IEC update also mentions improved treatment of risk, sustainability and privacy issues.
