TASCC 2021 Consultation launched

AIC is pleased to announce the launch of consultation on the draft TASCC 2021 Standard, due to be introduced on 1st February 2021. Documents can be found on the AIC website:

The current TASCC 2018 standard has been thoroughly reviewed over the past year by the TASCC Review Group and Working Group, with the aim of clarifying, simplifying and re-emphasising the TASCC principles of food and feed safety.

Key changes proposed include: an increased focus on Food and Feed; the splitting of clauses into manageable requirements for ease of compliance and auditing; clearly defined section aims; and additional guidance throughout the Codes of Practice.

The new standard will be accompanied by updated appendices and templates on the AIC website.  

Email responses are invited to Gillian Barrow by the closing date at [email protected]. The consultation period will run until 5pm on Wednesday 9th September.
