FSS NSW Notification

7 January 2014

Local food service businesses who haven’t yet trained someone in their business as a Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) are being reminded to do so.
NSW Food Authority CEO Polly Bennett said the uptake of the program has been encouraging, however those businesses yet to train a person as an FSS need to make it a priority.
I’d like to remind the hospitality and retail businesses covered by this program, which includes restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs, it is a legal requirement that you have a trained Food Safety Supervisor operating in the premises.
A Food Safety Supervisor is the person in your business who is trained to prevent the hazards associated with handling and preparing food and holds the FSS certificate.
They effectively provide the lead and set in place a culture of food safety for staff in your business.
From 3 January 2014 businesses are no longer required to notify the Authority or their local council of their FSS details.
