Food Safety Supervisor

The Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) Legislation introduces mandatory food handler training for at least one person in certain hositality and retail food services businesses.

The FSS training will formalise food handler skills and knowledge by requiring completion of accredited training with the national Vocational Education and Training (VET) system.  this will facilitate the assessment and enforcement of the skills and knowledge requirement of the Food Standards Code for at least one person within each food business.

During routine inspections, Council Health Inspectors will check that a food  business has appointed at least one FSS for the premises (or per business for mobile caterers), and ask to see a copy of the FSS Certificate.

I will be the council's responsibility to maintain records of FSS notifications thaqt have been submitted via paper-based forms directly to the Council, or from the Authority's online FSS noitifcation system.

Council can take enforcement action if businesses fail to comply with the FSS requirements.
