Webinar Overview

Since the ASSDA Food Code of Practice was produced by an industry group in 2006, there has been one revision in 2014 but this pre-dated the substantial work on revamping the AS1528 group of tube and fittings standards. There are a number of relatively small corrections required and, of course, the usual updating of standards references. In addition, the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) has published a substantial number of new guidelines on hygienic fabrication and some of this information has also been incorporated.

In the context of a progression through the Code, this webinar will include:

  • The specific advantages of grades of stainless steel for particular food processes
  • The wide variety of conditions experienced in food processing and their potential effects
  • Avoiding potential problems by routine and, hopefully, well-known techniques
  • How the recent revision of AS1528 fits into the Code
  • A refresher on content and a run through of the modifications made in the Code.

A revised ASSDA Food Code of Practice will be released following the webinar event.
