Food Safety Supervisor Recertification Training

Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) certificates will expire from 1 September 2015. Under the NSW Food Act 2003, FSS certificates are current for five years from date of issue. To assist an FSS with re-certification, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) approved by the NSW Food Authority (the Food Authority) are offering training on food safety issues currently affecting the NSW hospitality and retail food service sector.

Based on an analysis of compliance statistics and microbiological surveys on food safety in the retail food service sector, the Food Authority found that poor performance in three key areas – allergen management, handling eggs safely, and cleaning and sanitising – often contributed to foodborne illness outbreaks. As a result, recertification training has been designed to enhance knowledge in these key areas.

Food businesses have 30 working days, from the date of expiry of the FSS certificate to make sure their appointed FSS participates in recertification training and obtains a new FSS certificate. By doing so, they will continue to promote and support a highly skilled and compliant retail food sector in NSW.
