FSANZ proposal for managing meat safety

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 2nd November 2011

The Australian Government’s main food regulatory standards agency, Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), has begun development of a new food production and processing standard for game meat (Proposal P1014).

The purpose of the new standard is to achieve a nationally consistent approach to the management of meat safety.

Development of this standard will require extensive stakeholder involvement with a minimum two rounds of public consultation.

FSANZ has said there will be opportunity to comment on the proposal at a later date which will be publicly notified.
