Need to be trigger mechanisms to initiate process. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not a repeat of a CB audit. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus would be on critical issues and confirmation of validity of certificates. </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Global Trends – Accreditation <ul><li>IAF Working Group. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Food safety management system working group . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Harmonisation of food safety management systems. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>GFSI decision to recognise food safety management systems. </li></ul><ul><li>Brief of working group modified to include more than ISO 22000 and ISO/TS 22003 as a result of this decision. </li></ul>
  16. 16.

  17. 17. Global Trends – Social Responsibility <ul><li>Covers child labour, working conditions – hours, discrimination, forced labour, health and safety…. </li></ul><ul><li>Scheme owners including modules to addressed. </li></ul><ul><li>Eg. SQFI – Ethical sourcing module. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Global Trends – Environmental Responsibility <ul><li>Sustainability. – recycling, solar energy, waste disposal… </li></ul><ul><li>There are over 8000 EMS (ISO 14001 – environmental management systems) certified clients world-wide (From JAS-ANZ accredited CB’s). </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in multiple certifications of suppliers ie. More than one standard such as food and environment or combined. </li></ul><ul><li>Green House Gas Verification (JAS-ANZ now accredits Verification Bodies) – much interest. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Global Trends – Organic Food (Local) <ul><li>Organic sector the fastest growing food sector in Australia (AS6000/MP100). </li></ul><ul><li>A high-value market where products sell for a considerable premium. </li></ul><ul><li>Organic foods popular with consumers who: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Want to avoid consuming Agvet chemicals including pesticides </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Support sustainable agricultural practices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Are concerned about animal welfare, and/or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Believe that organic food is tastier and more nutritious </li></ul></ul><ul><li>But despite these consumer expectations… </li></ul>
  20. 20. Global Trends – Organic Foods (Local) <ul><li>No regulatory standard previously but many private standards – confusing for the consumer. </li></ul><ul><li>The two main international organic standards – Codex and IFOAM – were referenced during development of AS6000/MP100. </li></ul><ul><li>Published around 12 months ago. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Global Trends – GFSI & Scheme Owners <ul><li>GFSI: Benchmarking schemes – inclusive of food safety management systems now. </li></ul><ul><li>Private standards looking at becoming accredited certification eg. Freshcare. </li></ul><ul><li>Push in private standard recognition at global level. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Global Trends – Certification <ul><li>Combined audits of integrated systems or consolidation of existing standards/schemes. </li></ul><ul><li>CB’s seeking internationally recognised schemes for accreditation. </li></ul><ul><li>Challenge for auditors to audit multiple schemes at the one audit eg. SQF, Woolworths, Coles, HACCP… </li></ul>
  23. 23. Global Trends – Why are there different standards? <ul><li>There are a number of different standards for suppliers/end-users to choose from – why?? </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple standards not in best interest of trade. </li></ul><ul><li>Harmonistation of food safety standards has been discussed at IAF, GFSI etc levels BUT….. </li></ul><ul><li>To develop one global standard, there are a number of complex issues, such as legislative , political and cultural differences, that would be extremely difficult to overcome. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Global Trends – Why are there different standards? <ul><li>Different supplier/end-user needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Challenge for AB’s/CB’s is to find the balance in meeting end-user needs and providing confidence in the AB/CB processes. </li></ul><ul><li>In absence of global standard, benchmarking provides an equivalent outcome. </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>QUESTIONS? </li></ul>
