iia initiative regarding maximum dose for phytosanitary irradiation

The maximum limit of 1 kGy imposed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) on fresh produce irradiated for phytosanitary purpose often poses challenges to radiation processors. The iia has created a small informal group to write a petition to change or remove this upper limit that is found neither in the Codex Alimentarius General Standard for Irradiated Food nor in ISPM 18.
