Evaluation report series

In 2000, as part of implementing the joint Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, FSANZ (then ANZFA) introduced the Evaluation Strategy 2001-2003. The aim of this strategy was to facilitate scientific and technical evaluation of the impact, effectiveness and appropriateness of new food regulatory measures, including labelling requirements and food safety standards.

Baseline research on those measures was undertaken in 2001‒2003 which set the foundation for the subsequent FSANZ Evaluation Strategy 2004‒2008.

The 2004‒2008 strategy included a number of follow-up research projects designed to assess the changes experienced by our stakeholders, including our regulatory partners, the food industry, health professionals and consumers since the initial baseline research.  Those measures would enable FSANZ to complete the evaluation and provide an evidence base for future food regulation decisions.

The Evaluation Report Series below presents the results of these evaluation activities.
