AIB International is now providing Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Inspections against the revised Consolidated Standards for Inspection. Throughout 2016, AIB released updates for five of their Consolidated Standards for Inspection to incorporate important trends and needs for today’s global food chain, such as food fraud and supply chain control.
The revised Standards that took effect January 1, 2017 include:
- Prerequisite and Food Safety Programs
- Beverage Facilities
- Food Distribution Centers
- Food Contact Packaging Manufacturing Facilities
- Nonfood Contact Packaging Manufacturing Facilities
The Consolidated Standards for Inspection are key requirements that facilities must meet to ensure their products are wholesome and safe. These Standards are used by AIB’s food safety professionals as a guide for GMP Inspections and Inspection Only.
“Our Consolidated Standards for Inspection enable your food safety programs to reach their highest potential”, says Stephanie Lopez, vice president, Food Safety Services – Americas, AIB International.
“These updates will help you minimize your risk of food safety issues and exceed a customer’s expectations for providing wholesome and safe products”.
AIB has webinars and guidance documents that explain the changes and updates for each of the revised Standards to help clients prepare for changes in their 2017 GMP Inspections. All information pertaining to all Consolidated Standards for Inspection is available directly via AIB International.
