PURSUANT to the Health Act 1956 and the Food Act 1981, His Excellency the Governor-General, acting by and with the advice and consent of the Executive Council, makes the following regulations.

1 Title and commencement

(1)

These regulations may be cited as the Food Hygiene Amendment Regulations 1997, and are part of the Food Hygiene Regulations 19741 (“the principal regulations”).

(2)

These regulations come into force on 1 July 1997.

None of the provisions of these regulations, other than regulations 82, 85, and 86, applies to

(a)

Premises that are registered under the Dairy Industry Regulations 19902:

(b)

Premises that are licensed under the Meat Act 1981:

(c)

Any fishing vessel or premises in respect of which an exemption from licensing is in force under regulation 21(1) of the Fish Export Processing Regulations 19953.

3 Revocation

Regulations 4(4)(f) and 4(4)(h) of the principal regulations are consequentially revoked.

MARIE SHROFF,

Clerk of the Executive Council.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 1997, amend the Food Hygiene Regulations 1974.

The amendment exempts the following from all the requirements of the principal regulations, except regulations 82, 85, and 86:

(a)

Premises that are registered under the Dairy Industry Regulations 1990:

(b)

Premises that are licensed under the Meat Act 1981 (including seafood processing premises):

(c)

Fishing vessels or premises in respect of which an exemption from licensing is in force under regulation 21(1) of the Fish Export Processing Regulations 1995.

Premises registered under the Dairy Industry Regulations 1990 or licensed under the Meat Act 1981 are currently exempt only from registration pursuant to regulation 4.

The Dairy Industry Act 1952 and the Meat Act 1981 impose requirements relating to food safety that are equivalent to those of the principal regulations. The amendment removes the necessity for dairy, seafood, and meat processors to comply with both food safety regimes.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 5 June 1997.
