Food safety laws and requirements you need to know

Food Safety is governed by two sets of legislation enforced at a local council level by Health Inspectors.

Federal laws and requirements

Governed by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ).

Federal law states that anyone who works with food must be trained in certain aspects of food safety at a level appropriate to their role.

The official AIFS Food Handler Course meets these requirements.

State legislation and requirements

Each state has it's own Food Safety Act that you need to adhere to.

Legislation is strictest in NSW, QLD, VIC and ACT where it's mandatory to have a fully trained Food Safety Supervisor at every business location.

The official AIFS Food Safety Supervisor Course meets these requirements.

What can happen if we don't comply with food safety laws?

Suspended or cancelled licence

For serious offences, your food business licence may be suspended or cancelled, effectively closing your business.


For serious breaches, your employees, proprietors, managers and company directors could be charged, even jailed.

Prohibition or seizure orders

When public health is at risk, your business may be forbidden to handle food and you may have food seized from your premises and destroyed.

Significant fines

Fines (penalty notices) may be issued for each offence committed. These can run into tens of thousands of dollars.

Added to a Name & Shame list

In some states, your business name will be included on a food safety 'Name & Shame' list available to the public.

Brand & reputation damage

If a serious food safety incident occurs and is widely reported in the media, your business could struggle to recover its reputation.
