For the Standard to be adopted and successfully implemented, you’ll need commitment from senior management to ensure that food safety becomes part of the company culture. Without this commitment, it’s unlikely that the Standard will be applied consistently.
There are requirements within the Standard that need to be understood and applied by most departments within the organisation: from purchasing to personnel and from maintenance to production. Senior management will need to ensure appropriate support and resources are available.
These short guides are designed to help you interpret the Standard, and design robust systems and procedures that meet the requirements. Examples are given to explain the types of documents and procedures and the level of detail typically required.
