It is a legal obligation within the food chain to develop a self-regulatory system with regard food safety, legal quality and the traceability of any food produced (Royal Decree of 14 November 2003). In order to fulfil these legal requirements, you can consult Fenavian’s ‘compliance guide’ created by and for the purposes of this specific sector. This document, which has been approved by FASFC, the Federal Food Safety Agency, contains recommendations regarding how legal hygiene; traceability and self-regulatory requirements can be fulfilled.
In 2016 some updates and changes have been made to the guide. It was a few years ago that the guide was updated. We have taken the opportunity to remove all unnecessary information from the guide.
The guide is intended for meat product producers but can also be a useful tool for other companies in the sector, as the legislation on meat products is generally described.
