AIFST Update &

Food Safety Management Tools – Standard 3.2.2A review

Join AIFST CEO Fiona Fleming for an update on AIFST and SA Health for an information session on the new standard.

AIFST Update

Fiona will provide an update on what AIFST has been doing and plans for the rest of 2023 and beyond.  This will be a chance for you to ask questions and make suggestions for AIFST going forward.

The new Food Safety Standard

3.2.2A – Food Safety Management Tools is now in effect. The Standard introduces new requirements for all food service, catering, and retail businesses that handle unpackaged, ready-to-eat, and potentially hazardous foods.

These businesses must implement either two or three new food safety management tools, depending on their category, which is based on the risk of the food handling activities of the business. The tools are:

  • mandatory food handler training
  • implementation of a food safety supervisor
  • substantiation of key food handling activities.

This event is being held in person at the Regency TAFE campus in Adelaide.
