Egg Producer Application Forms
Primary Produce Safety (Egg) Regulations 2014 (Egg Scheme)
Category 1 - Unaccredited (Small) Commercial Egg Producer
Small commercial egg producers (producing less than 20 dozen eggs per
week) will not be required to hold an accreditation, have an annual food safety
audit nor pay any associated fees.
However, they will be
required to formally notify and register their activity with Biosecurity
They must also comply with
the Food Standards Code requirements in respect to commercial egg production,
including the requirement to have a Food Safety Management Statement and to
stamp their eggs.To assist small commercial egg producers in meeting their obligations
under the Egg Scheme, Biosecurity Tasmania has developed the information package below. The package provides the Notification Form, a basic
Food Safety Management Statement and advice on what you need to do to obtain a
free hand-held stamp kit.
Note: Small backyard egg producers who produce eggs (less than 20 egg-laying birds)
for their own consumption, (but may occasionally sell or barter excess
eggs directly to, for example, friends, family or work colleagues) are
exempt from the requirements of the Egg Scheme.
Category 2 - Accredited Commercial Producer
Category 2 Commercial egg producers produce greater than 20 dozen eggs per week that are mainly for commercial purposes. Category 2 producers require full accreditation and an approved and audited food safety program.
