FSS Certificate – Recertification
This condensed FSS course is for those students who already hold a Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) Certificate (Hospitality) and need to renew it. NOTE: This is for all states and territories EXCEPT NSW. If you need a NSW FSS certificate, then you need this course instead.
Food Safety Supervisor certificates expire five years from the date of issue. To be issued with a new certificate, you are required to renew your Food Safety Supervisor training. We have developed processes to assist individuals with a current or recently expired FSS certificate to allow for re-certification by completing a condensed version of the FSS course for certificate holders who meet the re-certification requirements as part of the learning and recognition pathway.
NOTE: This is a condensed FSS course, specifically designed for the re-certification of existing Food Safety Supervisor students. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be issued a Statement of Attainment (with hospitality units SITXFSA005 and SITXFSA006) valid for an additional 5 years.

If you already hold a Statement of Attainment issued by our company for unit SITXFSA101 (superseded), SITXFSA001 (superseded) or SITXFSA005, then you just need to complete SITXFSA006, which is the unit covered in the Food Handling Certificate online course (Level 2). Upon successful completion you will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for the single unit, where the two units together are recognised as being the units of competency required to be recognised as a food safety supervisor.

Information for people wanting to be issued with a NSW Food Safety certificate
In NSW, food safety requirements are set by the Food Act 2003 (NSW) and the Food Regulation 2015 (NSW). These Acts require that food sold in NSW is safe and suitable for human consumption and meets all standards set out in the Food Standards Code. Food Safety in New South Wales is governed by the NSW Food Authority which comes under the Department of Primary Industries. Together with NSW Health, the NSW Food Authority monitors food safety across the whole state. They make sure the food produced and sold in NSW meets all of the guidelines set out in the relevant state-based legislation.
Regulating & monitoring food safety in NSW
The NSW Food Authority is responsible for regulating and monitoring food safety across the entire NSW food industry.
Food safety training requirements
One of the key requirements in the NSW Food Act relates to food safety training. Every food business must have at least one designated Food Safety Supervisor per premises. This person is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day implementation of food safety in the workplace and must be trained in the right way.
Food Safety Supervisor training
Australian Institute of Accreditation has been approved by the NSW Food Authority to deliver NSW specific Food Safety Supervisor training, and the requirements are covered in our courses. This includes three key areas:
1. Safe egg handling
2. Allergen management
3. Cleaning and sanitising practices
When you complete training with Australian Institute of Accreditation, we’ll provide you with a NSW Food Safety Supervisor Certificate (sometimes known as the ‘Purple Certificate’) on behalf of the NSW Food Authority. This must be displayed in the food business. It is an additional cost of $30 + postage and handling.
NSW Recertification or Renewal
Once you receive your Food Safety Supervisor qualification, the certificate is valid for 5 years from the date of issue. If your certificate is due to expire you’ll need to complete the NSW recertification course to receive re-certification issued by the NSW Food Authority. Contact us by phone or email to discuss. Food businesses have 30 working days to ensure their appointed Food Safety Supervisor renews their training and obtains a new Food Safety Supervisor certification.
