Understanding High Risk, High Care and Ambient High Care
Publish Date: 20 September 2018
This guideline is intended to help sites understand whether the products they produce will require handling in a high-risk, high-care or ambient high-care area, and how the specific clauses for these areas should be interpreted. It does not represent an extension of the Standard, new or additional clauses, but is a further explanation of the requirements along with some examples, showing how the requirements of the Standard could be implemented.
For the first time Food Safety Issue 8 collates all the requirements for high-risk, high-care and ambient high-care products into a single section (section 8). This provides greater clarity on the requirements for products that need to be handled in these areas.
