Traceability in the context of food safety management -By AtoZ Compliance

Key Take Away :

This food safety compliance webinar will provide an overview of food traceability in the context of food safety management (HACCP, Preventive Controls, GFSI) by defining supply chain traceability as well as internal traceability.

Overview :

“Traceability is the ability to follow an item or a group of items – be it animal, plant, food product or ingredient – from one point in the supply chain to another, either backwards or forwards” (CFIA, 2016).

The webinar will address the need for one step forward/one step back traceability as part of a food company’s successful recall and food safety management system.

The webinar will discuss traceability requirements in Canada and the US. Examples will be given on how to demonstrate traceability requirements and food security training. Benefits of computerized food traceability systems will also be discussed.

Why Should You Attend :

Traceability is a requirement of today’s “modern” food safety management systems. It supports FSMA compliance and the company’s recall plan which allows for the fast removal of contaminated products from the marketplace.

In Canada, proposed regulations include new traceability requirements for businesses that prepare, import, export, or trade food across provinces. In the US, FSMA requires a recall and traceability plan for significant hazards requiring preventive controls.

For food/petfood manufacturers wishing to become certified to a GFSI-benchmarked scheme, minimal requirements for upstream and downstream product traceability is required for compliance.

The webinar will provide global food safety training and examples on how to comply with regulations and other food traceability requirements.
