Food Safety

Council EHO regularly conducts food business inspections of all premises to ensure adequate standards are met and acceptable food handling techniques used when preparing food for human consumption.

Food operators must comply with the relevant legislative requirements which include:

  • Food Act 2001
  • Food Regulations 2002
  • Food Safety Standards (FSANZ Food Standards Code Chapter 3)

More information regarding legislation and policies with respect to food can be found at the Department of Health Food Safety index

EHO's also attend to customer complaints with respect to food handling, food poisoning investigations and food recall follow-ups.

When a food business is established, or when the ownership/management of an existing food business changes, Council must be notified, before commencement of operations, by completing a Food Business Notification Form and returning it to Council.
