  • New: Guidance Document: How to Determine the Shelf Life of Food

    This guidance document has been developed to help operators to determine the shelf life of their food products and to apply the appropriate date marking. It provides useful information to assist operators preparing and handling foods for retail sale. Any legal requirements are shown in boxes with quotation marks. They are either directly quoted from the requirements (including any clause numbers) or are summarised when the requirement is too long to include completely. It is the operator’s responsibility to be aware of and comply with all applicable current legislation including any requirements that amend, replace or correspond to the requirements referenced in this guidance document. This guidance document was amended in June 2016 to: * correct a legal error in section 8 of the guidance document; * include a copy of the date mark alteration application form; and * update the references to the Food Standards Code.
