Food Safety for Auditors

Food Safety for Auditors

In Tasmania, certain food businesses are required to be third-party audited, in addition to their regular inspections by council. This includes food businesses that process food for service to vulnerable persons as covered by Standard 3.3.1 of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, such as hospitals, delivered meal organisations, aged care facilities and some child care facilities.

Auditors undertaking regulatory food safety audits of the businesses listed above must:

  • be approved by the Director of Public Health
  • abide by all provisions of Part 6A of the Food Act 2003, including reporting requirements.

People wishing to become approved regulatory auditors in Tasmania need to complete and submit an application form. The minimum qualification for approval is certification against the National Food Safety Audit Scheme Level 4 and, where relevant, additional scopes for cook chill processes.

Approved regulatory auditors needing to renew their approval should complete and submit a renewal form
