Simulated (mock) food recall requirement
From 1 July 2023, most food businesses will have to do a simulated food recall every year. This requirement applies to all businesses with a plan or programme under the food, wine, or animal products Acts. It also applies to all food importers and exporters. Your first simulated food recall must be done by 30 June 2024. You'll then have to do one every 12 months – unless you have carried out a genuine recall that shows your traceability and recall procedures were effective.
