What is an industry-developed template food control plan?
Organisations, such as an industry body, a restaurant chain, or a franchise, can create their own template food control plans (FCPs) to meet the needs of a particular group of food businesses. These are also known as section 40 or s40 templates.
The template belongs to the organisation or person who created it, so they control who can use it.
Using an existing industry-developed FCP
You can use an existing template if you have permission from the organisation that created it. Organisation with existing templates are:
- New Zealand Aged Care Association
- Care Association New Zealand
- Lone Star
- Baking Industry Association of New Zealand
- Bunnings Warehouse New Zealand
- Global Good Agricultural Practice (GLOBALG.A.P)
- New Zealand Good Agricultural Practice (NZGAP)
- British Retail Consortium (BRC) – for fresh produce only
- Ministry of Education
- Sushi Sushi Operations Limited
Creating a new industry-developed FCP
If you develop your own template, you'll need to apply to the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) to get it approved. Before we can approve it, we'll evaluate your template and consult on it with the public.
