Food premise plans assessment

Does your food premise require alterations?

If a premise requires structural alterations, the installation of new fittings or a mechanical ventilation system, we offer a plan assessment service that provides advice prior to construction commencing. This will ensure the premises complies with the requirements of the Food Safety Standards.

Please note that is not a statutory requirement under the Food Act to submit floor plans for the alterations or construction of a food premises. However, we strongly recommend that floor plans be submitted for assessment to ensure any proposed works comply with the requirements of the Food Standards Code.

This service is useful in helping proprietors avoid making costly alterations once construction has started or have been completed.

Your plans should

  • be drawn to a scale of not less than 1:100
  • show the layout of all fixtures and equipment
  • provide a description of materials used for surface finishes including walls, floors and bench tops
  • indicate locations of waste disposal area, bin wash area, storage areas and toilets.

How long does it take?

The submitted plans are processed and endorsed within 20 working days. We will then assess your plans and notify you in writing once your plans have been endorsed. An endorsed copy of the plans will be returned to you and then you can commence works, provided all other necessary permits have been obtained.

For example: Charcoal chicken shop preparing and cooking hot chickens; ready to eat salads and chips; chicken salad rolls and drinks.
