Does international CODEX allow the addition of natamycin to Tilsiter cheese?

The CODEX (International Foods Standards) sets the limit for the amount of natamycin in Tilsit cheese at 2 mg/dm2 and its absence at a depth of 5 mm. The use of natamycin is only indicated for treating the surface of the product, just as with Havarti, Gouda , Samso and Emmenthal cheese.
