Compliance & Food Safety Culture
The idea and concept of compliance from the Anglo-American legal sphere. It refers to the legal compliance of business enterprises, i.e. the duty of management to ensure compliance with legally binding requirements in particular. However, it can also mean rules to which a company or organisation voluntarily submits. Compliance is also understood as the totality of all operational specifications and measures that are intended to ensure the rule-compliant behaviour of employees and the company as a whole. A company’s own compliance management system can also detect violations and deviations or prevent them at an early stage. For food companies, there are also EU-wide requirements for the establishment, implementation and execution of a specific food safety culture.
