Food Safety Supervisor

Food Safety Supervisor

Current NSW food laws require certain food businesses to have at least one trained food safety supervisor by 1 October 2011.

All food businesses that do not meet the exemption requirements outlined by the NSW Food Authority and process and sell ready to eat potentially hazardous that is not in the suppliers’ original packaging are subject to these new laws. Full details can be found in the Food Safety Supervisor Guide .

The food safety supervisor needs to receive accredited training from a registered training organisation recognised by the NSW Food Authority. A list of registered training organisations can be found on the NSW food Authority Website.

It is essential that your business notifies council with the details of your food safety supervisor as soon as possible. A notification form must be completed and forwarded to council before 1 October 2011 or penalty infringements may be issued.
