Quick Launch

Social science

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We have published a range of social science research, literature reviews and regulation impact statements. These studies and reviews are often prepared to support an application or proposal to change the Food Standards Code, or to better understand consumer awareness, attitudes and behaviours in relation to food labelling and consumption.

    Regulation Impact Statements

    FSANZ is required by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) to undertake a regulatory impact assessment and prepare a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) for all proposed changes to the Food Standards Code. This maximizes efficiency of new and amended regulation and avoids unnecessary compliance costs and restrictions on competition.
