It is essential to food safety compliance that food safety inspections are conducted diligently and reports made available to all stakeholders in shortest possible time with quick response provision if needs to be taken. Food businesses have a legal and moral obligation to ensure they are not contributing to the statistics of food borne illness and at the same time the Food safety team must be equipped well to address to such issues.

Appropriate and timely control measures can only be taken if the nature of contaminant and/ or status of food is available in right time.
