Dear Local Council,

Can you please provide me with the number of food safety inspections carried out in your area annually, for the last three years?

How many warning were issued each year and how many fines each year?

What percentage of all food outlets did the council inspect each year?

Have any outlets been shut down for non-compliance and if so what for and how many?

What were the worst offences/biggest fines for each year?

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Gladstone

Your request has been referred to me for response.

As we must be mindful about the information we share and who we share it
with, it would be best to refer you to the NSW Food Authority's website on
which the NSW Food Regulation Partnership annual food surveillance reports
are published
[1]http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/rp/f... .

 

You should find most of what you require from these reports.

 

Thank you

Dear Sue Anderson,

Can I please clarify that I want to know how many high and medium risk food businesses were inspected in each year and what percentage of these were inspected in each year.

This request is very simple as all the information I am asking for is contained in an annual report all councils provide to the NSW food Authority.
Lane Cove council had this in their document management system but if you do not have a copy of it, you can request it from the food authority and they will email it back to you. I am happy to go through the form myself to get the information as several other councils have sent it to me.

Unfortunately, the Food authority will not release the forms as it is third party information so I have to request it from all councils individually. I have already received this information from more than 40 councils now without the need for a GIPA or any paper work as it is an informal request.

I would also like to know how many formal improvement notices were issued in each year.

Yours sincerely,

Nigel Gladstone
