This report lists food that has failed under the Imported Food Inspection Scheme (IFIS).
We target and monitor food that poses a high or medium risk to public health. We refer 100% of risk food imports until we establish a history of compliance.
If surveillance food fails a test, we apply a holding order. To achieve this, we apply a holding order to the non-compliant food from the particular overseas producer. This administrative instrument flags the food for increased testing. We do this until the overseas producer reaches a history of compliance. See a list of published holding orders.
'HO number' indicates a new holding order was issued for the failed surveillance food.
'HO match' indicates the fail was against an existing holding order.
'Risk' indicates that the fail was for a risk food. Future consignments of failed risk food are automatically referred for increased testing and therefore a holding order is not issued.
This table lists test results of non-compliant food we’ve detected.
