Food Safety Management Tools - Standard 3.2.2A

Standard 3.2.2A Food Safety Management Tools will be coming into effect in December 2023.

This Standard introduces new requirements for all food service, catering, and retail businesses that handle unpackaged, ready-to-eat, potentially hazardous foods. Businesses must implement either two or three new food safety management tools, depending on their category (as defined in Std 3.2.2A), which is based on the risk of the food handling activities of the business. The tools are:

  • Food handler training,
  • Implementation of a food safety supervisor
  • Substantiation of key food handling activities.

SA Health are hosting a virtual information session for affected businesses on Tuesday 23 May.

To register for the information session, as well as access more information including videos, resources and to read the Standard, visit here.
