Consolidated Standards for Inspection updated by AIB International

Four of 11 Standards updated due to new regulatory developments became effective January 1

AIB International has updated four of its 11 Consolidated Standards for Inspection.

Regulatory developments, including the US Food and Drug Administration's Food Safety Modernization Act, and other industry best practices impacting the food industry created a need for the update. The new requirements of the first four Standards took effect January 1.

Updated Standards include:

  • Prerequisite and Food Safety Programs Standard
  • Beverage Facilities Standard
  • Food Distribution Centers Standard
  • Food Contact Packaging Manufacturing Facilities Standard

AIB will continue to update the remaining Consolidated Standards through 2013, but these updates will not take effect until January 1, 2014, along with the elimination of the Dairy Standard.
