The Global Standard for Food Safety Version 7 was launched last week and audits against it will start from July.
The standard highlights supply chain integrity and the challenges of cross contamination in light of the horsemeat scandal in 2013.
Where risks have been identified, manufacturers must put in place processes, control measures and where appropriate sampling and analysis to ensure integrity of the product.
"Cross Contamination – A journey from risk assessment to management" involves practical delegate interaction and knowledge based learning, according to RSSL.
“Having been heavily involved in the horsemeat issue and advising the industry, this course has been specifically developed to give delegates both the confidence and ability to help meet the new BRC requirements,” said Barbara Hirst, RSSL consultant, food safety and quality.
