Information about the course
It takes a practical case study and discursive approach to applying Official Control Verification (OCV) methodology (developed by Food Standards Scotland) to the verification of food authenticity and integrity. This cutting-edge training course encompasses traditional nature substance and quality, provenance, food fraud and food crime.
The course will apply Food Business Operational Verification (our version of OCV). This is a scientific, structured and systematic approach to verification and goes much deeper than traditional auditing techniques.
- Uses the latest thinking in Official Controls Verification (OCV) methodology* for business operators.
- Roles of TACCP, VACCP, QACCP and HACCP.
- Detailed examination of two complex seafood products.
- Gap analysis and triangulation.
- Scenario based delivery using case studies.
- Systematic approach to verification.
- Delivered remotely via Teams or Zoom.
* OCV is a powerful methodology developed by Food Standards Scotland and adapted by Seafish to be used by food business operators. Food Business Operational Verification is a new, powerful tool and unique to this course.
The BRC auditor required evidence that the site had knowledge of risk with regards to integrity and authenticity. I was able to present my certificate and highlight some of the course content for her. This satisfied the requirements for the clause and she was pleased to see that the training was REHIS accredited. We achieved an AA grade for our BRC audit.
The cost for the courses is £400 per person. We can fund 50% of the cost for eligible seafood businesses.
