Driving Principles of Regulatory Compliance
Dan Rowe, Product Manager at JustFoodERP suggests, “Regulatory compliance is not just about the regulations. Many regulatory authorities discuss the risk of food safety incidents as one of their driving principles. Regulations focus on both minimizing risk, through Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), and responding to incidents, through recalls. Food companies should regard regulations in the same way. How aggressive a food company becomes in compliance efforts should be based on the risk level of an incident.”
Some food categories have a higher risk of an incident than others. Categories that process or sell fresh product (for example, seafood, meats, fruits and vegetables, and dairy) are at higher risk. These high-risk categories make up 33 percent (UK) to 54 percent (France) of food spending in the European Union and 44 percent in the United States.8 Companies dealing in these categories need to be more aggressive in their compliance efforts.
Preventing Food Safety Incidents
When making decisions regarding compliance efforts, companies must look beyond the traditional view of compliance and take a holistic approach. Dealing with the potential business problems associated with food safety incidents means collecting and organizing required information as well as preventing incidents.
Efforts should be made to reduce the risk of an incident by improving physical security, quality control, manufacturing procedures, and communications with suppliers along with other efforts.
Responding to Food Safety Incidents Quickly
Regulatory authorities need to know food companies are in control and ready to respond quickly to a food safety incident. The implementation of compliance processes must recognize this need and provide the ability to prove compliance. Mock recalls (in preparation for a real recall) prove that a company is ready in case of a real recall. Rowe insists, “The ERP system should enable mock recalls to be done quickly. For example, responding to the U.S. Bioterrorism Act requirement for a four-hour response can typically be reduced to minutes with an effective ERP system.”
