ISFR has recently commenced work to update its guidance on compliance and enforcement. A working group led by South Australia Health has been established to progress this work. The project has two components:
- The working group will review and revise the existing Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Enforcement Guideline (Enforcement Guideline), first published in 2009. Appendix 1 of the Enforcement Guideline was amended in 2015.
- The working group will also develop new material to describe the consistent approaches used by food regulators to facilitate compliance with the requirements of food regulation in Australia and New Zealand.
Stakeholders were informed in June 2016 of the commencement of this review. In order to further elicit the views of stakeholders and seek input to the work, a brief consultation document will shortly be distributed, including to local government contacts. The document sets out the background to the work, identifies relevant existing material that the working group will refer to during the project, describes the general direction for the work and asks several questions to prompt input.
