Food regulators conduct activities in the following areas:
- Generating compliance
- Monitoring and assessing compliance
- Responding to non-compliance
Food regulators are undertaking activities in support of all three areas on a continual basis and in an inter-connected manner. Food regulators conduct activities to generate and monitor compliance focussing on different topics or priorities as issues arise. At any point in time, food regulators will take action(s) to respond to non-compliance using a risk-based, graduated and proportionate response.

- Australia New Zealand Regulation Compliance, Monitoring and Enforcement Strategy
