You will require this approval if you intend to operate as a food safety auditor in Victoria.
Food safety auditors must audit food businesses to check that the food safety program, the Food Act, and applicable standards and code are complied with.
Food safety auditors must provide a certificate if a food safety program is adequate and being complied with. If there is a failure by the business to comply with an adequate food safety program or other requirements, it is then the role of the food safety auditors to notify the relevant council to take enforcement action.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
