Imported Food section update (NNF 2017/315)
The department has updated the reconsideration and review of decisions webpage from its website.
Key messages from this update:
- Importers can request reconsideration of 8 reviewable decisions under section 42, (2)a-h of the Imported Food Control Act 199 (the Act). All other matters fall outside the scope of section 42 reviewable decisions.
- The department encourages importers to contact the Food Safety Manager (FSM) at IFIS-InspectionSupport@agriculture.gov.au if they have concerns about an initial decision made in relation to an imported food prior to initiating a section 42 application.
The updated webpage will be of interest to food importers and can be accessed via the DAWR website.
