Risk analysis and assessment

FSANZ develop and reviews food standards covering the composition and labelling of food sold in Australia and New Zealand and Australia-only food standards addressing food safety issues and primary production and processing

FSANZ uses risk analysis, an internationally accepted process, for standards development and many other situations where food-related health risks need to be assessed, managed and communicated.

FSANZ uses a risk analysis framework in developing new food standards, evaluating proposed changes to existing food standards, for monitoring and surveillance activities, assessing food technology practices and considering emerging food safety issues. Using the risk analysis framework is intended to ensure effective regulatory decisions. Its use encourages communication between all interested parties including consumers.

The Risk Analysis in Food Regulation publication provides a broad overview of how FSANZ uses the risk analysis framework to manage a diverse range of food-related health risks.
