Does My Business Really Need a Food Safety Management System?
If you have a food and drink business (pub, bar, deli, cafe, sandwich shop, restaurant etc), since 2006 it's been the law in the UK that you must have a food safety management system in place. These laws are enforced by the Environmental Health Officers. Failure to comply can result in fines, temporary and even permanent closure of your food or drink business.
The Safer Food System - Implementing a Food Safety Management System incl HACCP principles - a training package and downloadable system in one.
Food safety systems and UK law
Since January 2006, a number of new food hygiene regulations have applied in the UK. These comprise 'Regulation (EC) No. 852/2004' on the hygiene of foodstuffs, and 'The Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006', plus equivalent regulations in Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland. These now state that ALL UK food and drink businesses must put in place 'food safety management procedures' and keep up-to-date records of these.
What is a Food Safety Management System?
'A Food Safety Management System is the application of processes and systems in a food business, in order to prevent food-borne illness and to protect consumer health'. The FSMS Safer Food Management System from East GB Ltd includes a full set of downloadable FSMS forms that enable you to quickly implement your own FSMS.
What is HACCP?
HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points. It is basically the process of identifying possible threats to food safety, and setting acceptable limits for each, and systems and procedures to ensure food production stays within these safe limits.
A HACCP Plan is an on-going working document that must accurately reflect what actually happens in your business. It is really a central index or reference point for a Food Safety Management System, it is part of a total FSMS, it is not THE system on its own.
