See the summary below for more details.
Product Safety Culture – There are considerable additions to food safety and culture requirements in section 1.1.2, including more specific requirements for the plan for the development and continuing improvement of a food safety and quality culture. These requirements are not rocket science but are clear, the plan must include communication, training, feedback, prescribed behaviours, performance measurement and timescales.
HACCP/Food Safety Plans, the whole of Section 2 has been aligned with the requirements with the 2020 revision of the CODEX General Principles of Food Hygiene. There have been some changes (shown in red) in alignment with CODEX Seven HACCP Principles and 12 Steps in HACCP Application.
Outsourced Processing – There has been an update of the definition of outsourced processing added to the Glossary and updates in Section 3.5.4 Management of Outsourced Processing with an emphasis on ensuring that any hazards associated with the outsourced operations are identified and controlled and that a service specification is agreed including any specific handling requirements for the products.
Equipment – There are major revisions of the requirements of Section 4.6 Equipment including requirements for a documented purchase specification for any new equipment, a documented, risk-based commissioning procedure and other food safety requirements for the management of equipment.
Animal Primary Conversion – New Section 5.9 Animal Primary Conversion with the requirements of the Issue 8 position statement incorporated into BRCGS Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 9.
