Compliance with legal requirements and reduction of waste for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical and non-food industries.
This white paper entitled '7 Easy Ways to Reduce the Risk of Non-Compliance' shows how a comprehensive food safety program which includes product inspection equipment and on-going support from the equipment supplier can help manufacturers ensure compliance with food safety standards and regulations.
Product inspection equipment can help manufacturers achieve compliance with global food safety standards and regulations, but only if the equipment is installed, operated and maintained correctly. This white paper explains the pivotal role service support can play in helping manufacturers reduce the risk of non-compliance by focusing on seven key areas:
- Professional Equipment Installation
- Annual Performance Verification
- Use of Certified Test Samples and Weights
- Effective Staff Training
- Use of Genuine Spare Parts When Required
- Implementation of Upgrades for Older Equipment
- Use of Service Contracts

Consumer concern over food safety is growing around the world driving the requirement of manufactures to reduce the risk of non-compliance. Although most of the food in the supply chain is safe, safety scares and product recalls continue to highlight the potential danger of foodborne microbiological and physical contamination threats.
Holding a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) approved certification has become increasingly important in helping manufacturers reassure consumers and retailers that products coming off their production lines are safe for consumption. In addition, manufacturers must comply with local and global food safety legislations in the markets they serve, such as the FSMA in the USA, ANVISA in Brazil and the Food Standards Act in the EU. Common to these is the requirement to provide a processing environment which minimizes the risks of product contamination.
Failure to adhere to food safety standards and regulations poses several risks and can result in contaminated products reaching supermarket shelves, failed audits leading to loss of retailer contracts, penalties for breaking the law, costly product recalls and irreparable damage to a company's reputation.
