Review of Food Safety Unit Standards

2023 Revision of 3 Food Safety unit standards

Ring Hora Services Workforce Development Council is responsible for developing standards and qualifications in the Services Sector.

We are commencing a revision of the following unit standards listed on the NZQA Directory of Assessment and Skill Standards (DASS) in the Food Safety (3) domain.

Unit Standard Title Level Credits
168 Demonstrate knowledge of food contamination hazards, and control methods used in a food establishment 3 4
15275 Monitor staff under a food control plan in a food-related establishment 4 15
27955 Apply food safety practices in a food-related establishment 3 5

With New Zealand Curricula, Skills Standards and Micro Credentials being developed in the coming years, Ringa Hora does not envisage making significant changes to these unit standards at this time. We propose these unit standards undergo a Rollover and Revision with a Planned Review Date of December 2026 to align with other unit standards in the Food Safety Domain.

If you have any comments and suggestions that might inform the revision of these standards, we would like to hear from you. Please forward your feedback to [email protected] by 5pm Thursday, 16 March 2023.
