TACCP & VACCP Food Defence Biovigilance Bioterrorism One Day

Food Fraud/PAS 96

Since the publication of ISO 22002:2009, (Prerequisite programmes on food safety for Food manufacturing), food defence, biovigilance and bioterrorism have become a topic of debate and concern for many food business operators.  PAS 96, (Defending food and drink), is the recognised publicly available standard which advises Food Business Operators (FBOs) how to construct and implement the necessary controls to assure its customers that their products are safe and secure. PAS 96 focuses on the threats to the food and drink industry from ideologically motivated groups, criminals or individuals with a grudge who may wish to damage an organisation.  PAS 96 provides broad guidelines to FBOs which should help them assess and reduce the risk to their business and to mitigate the consequences of an attack.  The risk is different for different businesses, operations and  products.  It is therefore implied that different risk assessments will result in different action plans proportionate to an individual situation. It is assumed that FBOs are aware of HACCP or similar risk management procedures, crisis management and business continuity management principles and have effective procedures in place.  The TACCP (Threat Assessment Critical Control Point) study should be integrated into the existing Food Safety Management System thus ensuring product safety.
