LEVELS 1, 2 & 3 VERIFICATION
A National Programme Verification is conducted on the premises or if mobile can be brought to us. The process is the same regardless of what level you may fall under. The verifier will like to see you operating and check that all records are maintained.
Custom Food Control Plan
The purpose of a Custom Food Control Plan verification is to ensure that you are following your Food Control Plan effectively including keeping all records up to date and accurate.
The verifier will keep you informed throughout the process and provide feedback on their observations.
Custom Food Control Plan
An evaluation consists of an approved evaluator reviewing your Custom Food Control Plan documentation, records and premise.
The purpose of an evaluation is to ensure your documentation reflects your operation and that you are likely to provide safe and suitable food.
Template Food Control Plan
A Template Food Control Plan is a document that has been written and approved by The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) eg; Simply Safe & Suitable (SSS), BIANZ & Ministry approved codes of practise.
The verification will always take place onsite. The aim is to see your operation and ensure you are implementing your plan. This will also be a good opportunity for the verifier to see that all records are being maintained, have a discussion with key staff and check the overall cleanliness of the premises. Often this type of verification is carried out by the local council.
Multisite Food Control Plans
Auditing Solutions also verifies Multisite Food Control Plans. This occurs when a business has more than one site trading throughout districts. MPI is the Registration Authority, and the Verifier must be a Third-Party Accredited Agency.
The process is the same as a Template Food Control Plan Verification.
