Hi guys,

 

I'm just wondering if anybody knows of any books or literary pieces that describe European/UK food law in more basic terms? I'm hoping to purchase something to have on site at my place of work that can be referred to by anybody but particularly by my QA assistant. I'm sure you're all aware that the law is a complicated beast and takes a lot of getting your head round. I'm looking for something that would simplify everything for beginners/intermediates. So for example:

 

"2.- (1) Subject to sub-paragraph (2) and paragraph 3, any person who keeps any food-

 

(a) which is likely to support the growth of pathogenic micro-organisms or the formation of toxins; and 

 

(b) with respect to which any commercial operation is being carried out,

 

at or in a food premises at a temperature above 8°C commits an offence"

 

Would be translated into "Make sure temperature sensitive food such as milk and cooked meat is kept below 8°C"

 

Hope you all catch my drift and that there's something out there that can help. I'm sure there is as there's pretty much a book on anything out there!

 

Andy

Hi Andy,

 

Basic is a subjective term. :smile:

 

FSA put out a variety of "guidances" not totally dissimilar to yr example but I hv (unfortunately) never seen a central index so far.

 

I think this often referenced amazing UK website attempts to "simplify" the legal situation but the frequency of updating of EC directives is a real challenge -

The official Europa website is not so bad IMO but not particularly  UK oriented of course

Hi Andy,

 

The British Hospitality Association recently published an Industry guide to good hygiene practice Catering Guide.  Whilst it is aimed at caterers it really just explains 852/2004 and the Food Safety & Hygiene Regs 2013.  It is divide into what the regs say, what that means and what is best practice.  You can get an electronic or physical copy for less than £20.  Well worth it.
