Regulating Our Future




WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

The Regulating our Future programme is the biggest change in enforcement in a generation. This must see talk from Michael Jackson, the project lead from the FSA will explain why change is needed, who it will affect and what it might cost food businesses.

The FSA are looking to create a system that is modern, risk-based, proportionate, robust and resilient. This means big changes to how food safety is managed by local and national government, including ‘full cost recovery’ – charging food businesses.

Find out how your business is likely to be affected and what work NCASS are doing on your behalf to reduce the impact on members and ensure you reap the benefits of the changes.


SPEAKERS

We’ve reached out to experts to find out the answers to the questions you have about changes to food safety. Read more about them below.



Jenny Morris received an MBE for her services to Environmental Health in 2014 and is one of the most respected food safety professionals in the industry; Jenny was seconded to LOCOG, the London Olympics Committee and is the former Head of Police at the CIEH. Not only does Jenny have unprecedented experience within the environmental health sector, she too was once a mobile caterer and now serves as an advisor to the NCASS board.





Who is he? Not the singer. He is a senior civil servant at the Food standards agency, he has been tasked with developing and introducing Regulating our Future, a culture shift in how food safety is enforced. The FSA are looking to make the system of enforcement more efficient (its currently carried out by EHO’s who visit every food business in the country) and cost effective (reduce costs/charge businesses). The FSA are looking at incorporating the primary authority scheme into ROF and as such, NCASS will be able to assist the authorities to cut the number of visits and inspections for compliant businesses and to target non-compliant businesses.





Mark oversees all of the sustainability initiatives undertaken by NCASS on behalf of our members. Mark worked on the Glastonbury Green Trader Awards for several years, during which time he arranged the first Sustainable Catering training course with the Sustainable Restaurant Association. He co-developed the first 8th Plate project which salvaged nearly 30 tonnes of food from seven festivals in 2015 with Claire O’Neil from ‘A Greener Festival’ and FareShare SW.

Mark also represents the catering industry at Powerful Thinking and ongoing work in support of A Greener Festival. In 2018, Mark re-launched a new version of 8th plate aimed at making food salvage more affordable and practical. After successful trials, it will launch at around 20 festivals this year with the aim of embedding food salvage into event catering.
