TiFSiP conference to shine a light on latest developments in food law
The Institute of Food Safety Integrity & Protection (TiFSiP) is set to host a high-profile conference in March to discuss and debate the latest developments in food law.
The Food Law in Practice Conference is taking place on Wednesday 16 March at 15Hatfields, London, and will bring together leading legal experts and health specialists to explore the changes in food law and explain the implications for food businesses and the enforcement community.
Organised by TiFSiP, a membership body for individuals and organisations who work to keep food safe, healthy and trustworthy, this unique event will provide authoritative guidance to help businesses comply with food law and give insight into practical issues, for both businesses and enforcement officers.
High-profile speakers confirmed include: Mr Justice Holroyde, Presiding Judge of the Northern Circuit and member of the Sentencing Council for England and Wales; David Travers QC, Barrister, Six Pump Court; and Richard Elson, Head of Risk Assessment and Response at Public Health England.
Recent changes in food law and what they mean for you, new Sentencing Guidelines and insight into the likely direction of travel for European and UK food law are just a few of the topics that will be discussed during the conference.
To avoid missing out on these essential updates places need to be booked now. The conference is suitable for professionals working in legislation and compliance; food safety and integrity; environmental health practitioners and lawyers with an interest in food law.
Jenny Morris, Head of TiFSiP, said: “Food law exists to protect the public and make sure that there is a level playing field for businesses. But it is complex and if a business gets it wrong it can be extremely costly for all those involved. This can be in terms of money lost, health impacted or a shift from preventing problems to prosecuting failure.“
The Food Law in Practice conference will provide an update that looks at how new guidance will affect fines, how the best case can be made and defended and will consider the value and use of voluntary warnings.
By doing this TiFSiP aims to ensure that all those involved in maintaining high standards of food safety and integrity, wherever they work, are well informed and can use information from the event to drive up consumer protection standards.
