Register of Food Offences
Food Offence Register
When an individual or company is found guilty of an offence against the Food Act 2001, ACT Health publishes a summary of the conviction on the Register of Food Offences.
Publishing offences allows consumers to make informed decisions about where they eat or buy food.
Offences on the register may include the handling and/or sale of unsafe food, misleading conduct relating to the sale of food or failure to comply with the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
Information can be published on the register after a person or business has been convicted, sentenced and the appeal period has expired. Information will not be published on the register if a non publication order has been made by the Court.
Information can be published on the register for up to 2 years.
