Standard 3.2.3 – Food Premises and Equipment

(August 2015)

Standard 3.2.3 sets out requirements for the design and construction of food premises, fixtures, fittings, equipment and food transport vehicles. The objective of this standard is to ensure that, where possible, the layout of the premises minimises opportunities for food contamination. If complied with, these requirements will help food businesses meet the food safety requirements of Standard 3.2.2.

Some exemptions apply to temporary food businesses and businesses operating from a private home. For further information you should contact your state or territory health department or local council.
