The food safety supervisor requirement currently does not apply to businesses licensed by NSW Food Authority or:
Coffee vendors that only heat milk
Not-for-profit community and charitable causes
School canteens (primary and secondary)
Children’s services (child care centres)
Out of school hours care services
Supermarkets if heated food is not sold

A food safety supervisor certificate is issued by a Registered Training Organisation in addition to an academic transcript. The certificate is valid for a period of five years. It is a legal requirement that all businesses keep a copy of the Food Safety Supervisor Certificate on the premises and produce it for inspection when requested by an authorised officer.
