yes Declaration of alcohol by volume: 


- If over 1.15% alcohol, this should be expressed in mL/100mL or X% alcohol by volume 


- If content is between 0.5 and 1.15%, label should state "contains not more than X% alcohol by volume" 


- Labeling must be accurate to within 0.3% for beer; 1.5% for wine; and 0.5% for spirits 


Number of standard drinks per container: 


- One standard drink is the amount of the beverage that contains 10 grams ethanol, measured at 20˚C. If container holds fewer than 10 standard drinks, this estimate should be accurate to one decimal place; above 10 drinks, accurate to the nearest whole number.
Ingredient listing is only required for products not standardized in Standards 2.7.2 to 2.7.5 of the Australia-New Zealand Food Standards Code 


Alcoholic beverages in the categories beer, wine, fruit wine, and spirits are exempt from including nutrition information panels, ingredient lists, and percentage labeling of characterizing ingredient. 


- Allergens: The new general food labeling provisions of the Food Standards (Volume Two) require a new mandatory declaration of certain allergenic substances. Additives and processing aids containing eggs or egg products, casein and potassium caseinate, milk or milk products, fish or fish products, nuts, added sulphites in concentrations of 10mg/kg or more, and some other substances must be declared if any traces could remain in the final product (see Allergen Labeling, Mandatory Declaration). 


- Additives: Permitted additives and processing aids for wine, sparkling wine and fortified wine are prescribed by Standard 4.5.1. Any additives not listed in the Table to Clause 3 of Standard 4.5.1 are illegal to use in Australia. Caution: Where there is no added sulphur dioxide, care must be taken in any claim that the wine is "sulphur- or preservative-free," as sulphur dioxide can be produced by yeast. "Preservative-free" should only be claimed if there is less than 10mg/L of total sulphur dioxide in the wine.
