AA helps business partners prepare for the new legislation

02  October  2015

On 25 August, the AA organised a briefing on "Legislative proposals on regulation of edible fats and oils and recycling of waste cooking oils" with 23 business partners representatives in attendance. During the briefing, the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department and Environmental Protection Department shared the details of the legislative proposal which aims to strengthen the regulation of the manufacturing, import and export of edible fats and oils in Hong Kong, as well as the promotion of recycling of waste cooking oil.

Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency also introduced its "Hong Kong Cooking Oil Registration Scheme" to facilitate organisations to supply and consume cooking oil from identifiable sources, as well as to collect and treat waste cooking oil in a proper way.
