Proposal P1053 – Food Safety Management tools

In June 2018 The Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation (the Forum) noted the increase of foodborne illness outbreaks in Australia and agreed that there is a need to review food safety risk management for the food service and closely related retail sectors.

In response, FSANZ has commenced a Proposal to consider additional food safety management tools for these sectors as part of a broader review of chapter 3 and 4 of the Food Standards Code. For more information see our Review of the Food Safety Management Standards.

Next steps:

In early 2020 we will be seeking comment from the community, industry and other interested parties through a discussion paper.

The discussion paper will outline our approach to the proposal and seek information on the impact of identified potential regulatory measures, as well as general feedback.

Interested parties will have another opportunity to comment in the call for submissions which is expected later in the year.

This page will be updated as work progresses. If you are interested in participating in the public consultation please email
