The NSW Food Authority has a requirement for a certificate to be issued in the New South Wales Food Authority format.
Each appointed Food Safety Supervisor needs to be trained in specific nationally recognised units of competency as determined by the Food Authority, as well as the Food Authority’s own 3 key focus areas:
1. Safe egg handling
2. Allergen management
3. Cleaning and sanitising practices
The Food Safety Supervisor certificate is issued by ‘an approved Registered Training Organisation (RTO)’ in addition to the Statement of Attainment after successful completion of the training requirements.
The Food Safety Supervisor certificate is valid for five years from the date of issue.
