Conference advertising policy

From time-to-time, organisations seek to advertise upcoming conferences in Food Standards News. This policy outlines the types of conferences which may be advertised and the conditions for advertising.  


Acceptable conferences or events will be relevant to one or more of the following topics: food regulation; food safety; food science and technology; nutrition; food security; or food packaging. This list is not exhaustive. If you believe the conference you wish to advertise falls within the scope of Food Standards Australia New Zealand business or our stakeholders’ business please send supporting documentation with your request for consideration.  
FSANZ will not accept any conference or event advertisement in the following categories:
  • material that advertises, offers or promotes commercial interests
  • material that is overtly party political
  • material encouraging conduct that may or would constitute a criminal offence or give rise to civil liability; or that would otherwise violate any Australian or overseas law
  • material that is obscene, offensive, vulgar or violent
  • material that incites, induces, aids, assists, promotes, causes, instructs or permits violence, discrimination, harassment, victimisation or hatred towards others
  • material that is likely to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate others on the basis of any personal characteristic, including but not limited to: religion, colour, race, ethnicity, gender identity, marital or domestic status, sexual preference, age or any disability.


All acceptable commercial conferences will be charged a flat rate of $500 to advertise in FSANZ subscriber-based publications.
FSANZ reserves the right to waive the fee, for example, if a conference or event is not being conducted on a commercial basis. 


If you would like to submit your event for publication, please contact and we will consider your request.
