Vulnerability assessment for food fraud – 8 hours – BRC accredited training
To provide manufacturers with an in-depth and practical understanding of Vulnerability Assessment for Food Fraud tools and techniques, and how they can be applied in a practical manner relevant to the delegate’s industry sector.
The course is aimed at purchasing, technical and manufacturing staff from sites currently certificated to BRCGS Standard for Food Safety, who need to become familiar with the principles and practices of Vulnerability Assessment techniques.
Delegates should have read and reviewed the latest version of the Global Standard for Food Safety. This is available to download free of charge from the BRCGS Bookshop (www.brcgsbookshop.com), or hard copies (with integral guide) are available to purchase from the BRCGS bookshop. They should bring a copy with them to the training course.
This 8 hours course will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of vulnerability assessment for food fraud and enable them to use techniques to better identify and mitigate risks associated to raw materials in the supply chain.
This is particularly useful when implementing product safety management systems and the requirements of the BRCGS Global Standards on site.

- Understand vulnerability assessment requirements for BRCGS.
- Understand what is meant by the term 'food fraud'.
