Selected news, views and solutions on the latest UK & EU legislation
Keeping up-to-date with UK & EU legislation is paramount for those working in the food industry, whether you are a leading retailer, advisory consultant or Technical Manager. The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology recognises that staying in touch with rapidly changing requirements and maintaining an awareness of current legislation is critical.
To help our members stay alert to changes, the Society offer a legislation forum with industry leading experts to enable them to work through the minefield of information, offering solutions and guiding them to compliance. Each forum will be held at the SOFHT Training Room as a morning session.
This is a free benefit to all our members and we welcome your attendance. Help us lead the industry to compliance and consumer confidence.
Wednesday 26th April 2017
Registration 9am. Forum 9.30am – 12.30pm
At: The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology, Middleton
This forum will discuss ‘Sentencing Guidelines’ led by Bob Witney from NSF International
The criminal justice system has had a major re-evaluation of the way criminal sanctions are imposed on offenders. It has long been argued that the penalties are too lenient for large companies and disproportionately harsh on small companies and individuals. The Sentencing Guidelines introduced early 2016 sought to make penalties effective deterrents to all and proportionate to the severity of the offence and ability to pay.
The forum will discuss:
- The principles of sentencing
- The legislation it applies to
- Worked examples
- Methods of mitigating offences
