Food Safety Standards - Sources of information & advice

Food Safety Standards - Sources of information & advice
Chapter 3 (Australia only), Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code
NOTE: The Food Safety Standards do not apply in New Zealand. The provisions of the food standards
treaty between Australia and New Zealand do not include food hygiene standards.
Sources of information
Copies of the standards, the guides to these and other fact sheets and supporting material can be found on
the ANZFA website.
As the standards are introduced through 2001, ANZFA will be developing other material to support the
introduction of the standards. This information will be added to the ANZFA website and will also be available
through State and Territory health departments.
As the standards are introduced in each State and Territory, food businesses will also be able to seek advice
directly from the Environmental Health Officers at their local councils, or from their State or Territory health or
health services department and Public Health Units.
Businesses will also be able to seek advice from their professional or industry association. Some associations are planning to develop specific guidance for their members to help them comply with the Food Safety
