Since December 2023, most Category 1 and 2 food businesses in Australia* require a Food Safety Supervisor by law (FSANZ Standard 3.2.2A) to be available during their hours of operation.

Category 1 businesses include restaurants, cafes, takeaway food shops, caterers, hospitals, childcare centres, family day cares, bakeries, mobile food vendors, market stalls, supermarkets and service stations that make and serve food.

Category 2 organisations include supermarkets, delis, service stations, seafood retailers, market stalls, and convenience stores.

* Note for NSW: In New South Wales, school canteens, children's services, supermarkets, greengrocers, and delis have been granted a 12-month extension, until December 8 2024, to fulfil the new food safety requirements mandated by FSANZ Standard 3.2.2A.

* Note for VIC: In Victoria, all Food Safety Supervisors who acquired their certification before December 8 2023, have until December 2028 to renew it.
