Integrating Management Systems for Food Businesses
ISO Annex L requires individual management systems to maintain a High Level Structure (HLS).
In the food industry there now exists a growing trend among many food businesses that food safety management, while an absolute priority, may no longer be the only management standard that a food business should strive to be adherent to.
These modern businesses now seek to create a seamless compliance management framework that unifies disparate compliance Management Systems.
This HLS applies to all systems of management applicable to a modern food business including:
- Food Safety Management
- Quality Management
- Environmental Management
- Health & Safety Management
- Sustainability Management
- Information Security Management
This presentation, delivered in August 2020, to the International Food Safety and Quality Network (IFSQN) discusses practical approaches a business may take to creating a singular system of management that is leaner and more efficient than multiple separate systems.
