Why the City issues health infringements
Under the Food Act 2008, Health (Asbestos) Regulations 1992 and the Environmental Protection Act 1986 modified penalties (i.e. infringements) can be issued for such things as:
- Food business not clean enough, insufficient maintenance, insufficient pest control, improper food handling, incorrect temperatures of foods (i.e. cool foods not refrigerated, hot foods not hot enough), improper waste disposal.
- Improper handling, breaking, storage and disposal of asbestos.
- Exceeding the assigned noise levels.
- Unauthorised discharge of liquid waste.
How to appeal a health infringement
In certain circumstances the City is prepared to withdraw an infringement that has been issued. Once suitable proof is provided, the following situations will be considered for infringement withdrawal:
- The officer made an error in judgement.
- The decision to issue an infringement notice was not in accordance with the City’s Compliance and Enforcement Procedure.
- The evidence obtained was insufficient to support the charge/offence.
- An error was made with respect to the details contained within the infringement notice.
- The City has made a decision to prosecute instead of issuing a modified penalty (infringement notice).
