Australian food regulation priorities for 2017-2021 announced
Australia’s 2017-2021 food regulation priorities has been announced.
The Australian food regulators priorities for 2017-2021 include:
- Reducing foodborne illness, particularly related to Campylobacter and Salmonella;
- Supporting the public health objectives to Reduce chronic disease related to overweight and obesity; and
- Maintaining a strong, robust and agile food regulation system.
Each of the priorities will consider a number of different issues, many of which are already at the stakeholder consultation stage.
One important development is the implementation of the revised Policy Guideline for Food Safety Management: retail/food service and completion of risk management toolkit project, which is at stage 4 of 5.
Stage 4 will consider which food safety management tools should be applied according to risk.
The final stage will determine the best way to implement the tools in a way which is consistent nation-wide.
