Revised guidance has been published for businesses on how to improve protections for food and drink supply.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and the British Standards Institute have today published a revised guide for food businesses on how to improve protections for food and drink supply.

The user friendly guide has been published to help provide advice to businesses on the steps they can take to strengthen resilience in their operations from a range of potential risks.

The latest version of the Publicly Available Specification guidance titled ‘PAS 96:2017 Guide to protecting and defending food and drink from deliberate attack’, has been jointly sponsored by the FSA and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

It uses risk management strategies which can be adapted to operations of all sizes at different points in the supply chain. It also provides advice on how businesses can detect potential vulnerabilities and the steps that they can take to mitigate them.
