How to comply with the Food Information Regulations (FIR) 2014
December 2014 is when the Regulations (FIR) came into force - it's all about having allergen controls in the business and the communication of allergen information to consumers.
We can provide businesses with our popular half day Food Allergen training session, to help you and your staff understand how to comply with the FIR Regulations.
On 1st January 2006 new food hygiene laws came into effect. The regulations require food businesses to implement and maintain Food Safety Management Procedures based on HACCP principles (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points).
It is a legal requirement for food businesses to document and verify their Food Safety Management System and SFBB is a pack used by many small/medium sized caterers to fulfil their legal requirements.
This course is designed to assist the candidate to understand how to tailor and apply the SFBB pack and is suitable for supervisors, managers, owners, cooks and chefs or anyone responsible for its implementation/maintenance.
The correct use of SFBB provides a firm commitment to producing safe food and is recognised by Environmental Health Officers and Auditors. This contributes to 'increased confidence in management', which is one of the key areas inspected by Environmental Health Officers during their inspections for the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.
