FSMS - Simple & Short Desc

BY Clarice Oelofse

The process when deciding to implement a Food Safety Management System can be intricate and complicated . Let's see how we can make it easier to understand by describing the key steps involved.


1. Go for a Gap Assessment. This will give you a report on findings and recommendations as well as a good idea where to start from. 


At this point the client opts to address all findings and corrective options themselves or request a capable consultant to help address the findings and/or implement a system from scratch. If so, you will move straight to Nr8. 
2. Client considers to implement FSMS
3. Requests formal proposal
4. Client Accepts & Service Level Agreement is signed
5. Implementation dates agreed upon
6. Implementation of FSMS (document development & staff training / coach and mentor staff)
7. Pre-Audit & close out findings
8. Independent Third Party Audit (external)
9. Close out findings
10. Maintenance Of FSMS – either in-house or as an outsourced maintenance function.


We can assist with all the steps involved, apart from Nr 8, beacuse you can't implement and externally audit your own system, right?
