REGULATIONS

Process validation is a cornerstone of major international food safety regulations and standards, including Codex and F.D.A. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). SurroNovⓇ surrogates are a key tool to comply with them.

The Guidelines for the Validation of Food Safety Control Measures (CAC/GL 69 – 2008), adopted by codex Alimentarius 2008, underline the interest of using non-pathogenic surrogate bacteria to provide scientifically valid experimental data that demonstrate the efficacy of a process:

SURROGATE ORGANISMS & PROCESS VALIDATION IN CODEX ALIMENTARIUS 2008

“Scale up of laboratory-based experimental trials in a pilot plant is helpful in ensuring that the trials properly reflect actual processing parameters and conditions. However, this almost always requires the availability of appropriate non-pathogenic surrogate microorganisms, as viable pathogenic microorganisms should not be purposefully introduced into a food production facility”.
