New food laws require certain food businesses in the NSW hospitality and retail food service sector to have at least one trained Food Safety Supervisor (FSS).
Businesses have until 1 October 2011 to appoint their trained FSS and notify the relevant council of their FSS.
The FSS must be trained by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) approved by the Authority.
Places like cafes, restaurants, takeaways, pubs and clubs will be required to have one Food Safety Supervisor per premises.
The new legislation will require refresher training every 5 years.
