What is Standard 3.2.2A?

Standard 3.2.2A in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, effective from December 8, 2023, introduces new requirements for food businesses nationwide. 

It mandates the implementation of a food safety management system, which includes key components such as Food Handler Training and Food Safety Supervision provided by Job Trainer Australia. 

This standard is essential for any business involved in food preparation or service across all Australian states and territorie

If your business prepares and serves food then this change affects you.

The new requirements need to be met by any business that prepares or serves food in any Australian state and territory. Standard 3.2.2A outlines the need for a food safety management system within a business, by introducing the following three tools:

★ Food Handler Training - Offered by Job Trainer Australia SITXFSA005

★ Food Safety Supervision - Offered by Job Trainer Australia SITSS00069

★ Record Management

Our Course covers the requirements of Standard 3.2.2A

The Standard obligates a Food Safety Training Course to encompass

➤ safe food handling, 

➤ contamination prevention,

➤ premises and equipment sanitation, and 

➤ personal hygiene components, ensuring comprehensive training in food safety. 

Job Trainer Australia's training course addresses all specified topics. 

Job Trainer Australia offers a comprehensive course covering essential aspects such as safe food handling, contamination prevention, premises sanitation, and personal hygiene. These are crucial for businesses preparing or serving food in any Australian state or territory.

Non-compliance with Standard 3.2.2A, effective from December 8, 2023, can lead to serious repercussions, including fines and license suspension. Hence, businesses must proactively ensure adherence to these updated food safety standards to avoid potential legal consequences

Who does this impact?

The new requirements need to be met by any business that prepares or serves food in any Australian state and territory. In Australia, food safety laws are enforced at a state and territory level.

No matter which state or territory you operate within, the new requirements of Standard 3.2.2A are more extensive than previous requirements. This means that food businesses need to take action to ensure they remain compliant as the consequences of noncompliance can be serious.

Prior to recent changes, many states and territories had their own special requirements for food handling and record keeping, these included New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory.

However, from December 8, 2023, all Australian states and territories must now comply with the requirements outlined in Standard 3.2.2A.

This also means that for the first time, those states and territories that previously had limited requirements, must now follow the new standard. This includes Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

What must I do to be ready before December 8?

Every business is different, Standard 3.2.2A has different requirements for different types of food-related activities. The following checklist is a good place to start:

Determine if the Standard applies to you, and which category your business falls into

★ Review your staff’s qualifications. Who needs to train or retrain?

★ Make sure you have a Food Safety Supervisor in every venue as required.

★ Get your current Food Safety Supervisors certified, or make sure their accreditations are up to date.
