This award is designed to address a requirement for UK food manufacturing businesses and food service (catering) premises where food or drink is served, to employ a documented Food Safety Management System (FSMS) based on HACCP principles within their core operation. The use of a documented FSMS based on HACCP principles has been a legislated mandatory requirement in the UK and EU since 2006. This legal requirement means that food manufacturing and food service premises owners, managers, and supervisors must fully understand and apply HACCP principles
within a documented functioning FSMS based on HACCP principles. Learners gaining this award will discover the pivotal role that HACCP based Food Safety Management Systems play in the safe manufacture, supply, retail and service of food in the UK. The topics covered and defined in the syllabus are regarded by UK and EU law, Food Standards Agency and Environmental Health Officers as being fundamental to the definition of good practice and
important to the production of safe food from a systems (procedural) and supervisory perspective.
