On 1 July 2018 the new Country of Origin Labelling requirements for food come into full effect. The detailed and complex Information Standard under the Australian Consumer Law can be difficult to navigate to find out exactly which requirements applies to your food products.

Presented by Chris Preston, a Legal and Regulatory Specialist with over 30 years’ experience in food regulation, this workshop is designed to help you to find out what you need to know and do, not just in order to be compliant, but also to understand how to take advantage of the flexibility in the Information Standard and turn this mandatory change into an opportunity.

By attending you will gain insight into:

  • The detailed requirements of this new standard
  • How to apply it to your products
  • How to ensure compliance is met and by when
  • What information you need to get from your suppliers and how
  • Related regulated changes and managing label updates

Who should attend?
Food professionals and business owners working in a regulatory role or quality assurance and control and marketing personnel, all needing to understand the regulatory system within which they must operate.
