Item

Column 1

Approvals

Column 2

Statement of risk

1

Food Safety Auditors approved under Part 7, Division 1 Section 73 of the Food Act 2001 (South Australia).

A risk exists to the health and safety of the public, in particular to vulnerable persons and the wider population as a result of the adoption of automatic deemed registration under AMR as a direct consequence of the varied levels of competency and inability of interstate auditors to meet specific local requirements under the Food Act 2001 (South Australia)

2

Regulatory auditors and inspectors (drinking water) approved under Part 4, Division 1 Section 15 of the Safe Drinking Water Act 2011 (South Australia)

A risk exists to the health and safety of the public, in particular to vulnerable persons and the wider population as a result of the adoption of automatic deemed registration under AMR as a direct consequence of the varied levels of competency and inability of interstate auditors and inspectors to meet specific local requirements under the Safe Drinking Water Act 2011 (South Australia).

Breaking the nexus between food and drinking water audits in businesses providing food to vulnerable people and utilising independent drinking water supplies represents a public health risk.        

 

 

 

 

 

             (4)  This section is repealed at the end of 30 June 2027.
