Food Hygiene Legislation for the Food Industry: 9th – 12th November 2015
The Food ATP’s Food Hygiene Legislation for the Food Industry training module provides an overview of the main food safety and hygiene legislation and the approach to enforcement in the UK.
The training module will cover:
- An outline of the EU and how it affects food hygiene legislation in the UK
- Organisations which contribute to the development or enforcement of food hygiene legislation including: Food Standards Agency, Local Government Regulation Codex Alimentarius, Better Regulation Development Office
- Current EC and UK Legislation
- Offences, defences and enforcement decisions
- Current issues in food control including; earned recognition, effective enforcement and sanctioning, primary authority.
- Failure of HACCP/food safety management systems
And will ask the big questions:
- Is prescriptive or adaptive legislation preferable for the food industry in the UK?
- Is enforcement an effective way to protect public health?
- Can the roles of enforcement and advice be combined on source?
- Can self-regulation in the food industry adequately protect public health
Led by Madeline Smith who specialises in Food Control and whose background in enforcement and industry provides an extensive practical and knowledge base in addressing modern food safety issues, the module is available as CPD training, or can be assessed as full credit bearing for contribution towards any of the Food ATP’s post graduate qualifications.
