Food Safety Management Tools, 2nd Edition

ILSI Europe Report Series. 2011:1-32

The first edition of the ILSI Europe Report on ‘Food Safety Management Tools’ published in 1998 has been updated taking into account current developments, e.g. the Food Safety Objectives concept. The primary focus of the report is on microbiological food safety management, but the general principles are also applicable to the management of chemical food safety. This report also considers the interrelationship between risk analysis (i.e., risk assessment, risk management and risk communication) as carried out by regulatory authorities and the food safety management programmes of companies involved in the production, sale and handling of food. This then leads to the expression of an appropriate level of protection and definition of appropriate objectives to ensure safe food, which should then be used by companies to establish their own requirements.
