Food Standards Code - The Law!
Each State and Territory in Australia has it's own Food Legislation, usually under the title of The Food Act (year of publication). For example, in Queensland it is the Food Act 2006.
These pieces of legislation make compliance with the Food Standards Code mandatory. The Food Standards Code is a large document made up of a number of chapters and schedules. For the majority of food businesses licensed by Local Government, it is Chapter 3 of the Food Standards Code which is of most importance.
