The Food Regulation Standing Committee (FRSC) is the sub-committee of the Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation (the Forum). The FRSC is responsible for coordinating policy advice to the Forum and ensuring a nationally consistent approach to the implementation and enforcement of food standards. It establishes working groups as required when mapping out the steps required for developing a specific policy.

FRSC membership closely mirrors the Ministers represented at the Forum, and includes senior officials of relevant government Departments (i.e; Health, Primary Industries, Consumer Affairs) responsible for developing food policy and the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) participating as a full member of FRSC. The Chief Executive of Food Standards Australia New Zealand participates as an observer. The Implementation Subcommittee for Food Regulation (ISFR) is a sub-committee of the FRSC.
