This rulebook corrects certain quality requirements for: garlic powder and granules, white and black pepper, chives, cloves in grain, lavender, oregano, ground allspice, cinnamon and vanilla sugar, in accordance with ISO and Codex Alimentarius (CA) standards. For most of these spices, the regulations did not introduce classes, which exist in the mentioned standards, but as minimum quality requirements, values related to II or III class were taken. As chives are treated as vegetables according to the customs tariff, the parameters are harmonized with the values prescribed by the Rulebook on the quality of fruits and vegetables ("Official Gazette of the RS" no. 28/20, 130/21). In the case of ground paprika, in addition to the fact that the quality is in line with the international standard, producers are also given the opportunity to highlight the premium quality on the product declaration, if it meets the additional requirements for the content of capsanthin. In the case of cinnamon, a single value was introduced for the minimum essential oil content, while previously it was prescribed for each type of cinnamon separately, which created problems during import, due to insufficient information on the type of cinnamon.

This Rulebook needs to be adopted in order to facilitate the operation of this part of the food industry and prevent barriers in foreign trade, after some of the ISO and Codex Alimentarius standards, which regulate the quality requirements for certain spices, have been revised. Also, the Institute for Standardization of Serbia has published a new edition of the Serbian standard SRPS EN ISO 7541 for one of the methods prescribed by the Rulebook on the Quality of spices, spice extracts and spice mixtures ("Official Gazette of RS", No. 72/14 and 23/15).
