Is HACCP mandatory in Australia?

For most food businesses in Australia, having a Food Safety Program based on the principles of HACCP is a legal requirement. Standard 3.2.1 of the Food Standards Code outlines this requirement.

Please consult your local authorities to find out the exact details of what your business requires. If you have any questions or need assistance building a Food Safety Program, please contact the AIFS support team.
