Self-monitoring is a system with which operators ensure that foodstuffs, primary production sites and food establishments as well as the operations therein meet the requirements set for them in food legislation. Drawing up and implementing a written self-monitoring plan is a legal obligation for all food industry entrepreneurs. The self-monitoring plan must be sufficient in relation to the operation, and it must describe the food hygiene risks that are essentially related to the operation in the food establishments.
Extent and monitoring of the self-monitoring
A self-monitoring plan is a requirement for all food industry operators. The self-monitoring plan must be kept up to date, and employees working in food establishments must be familiarised with the self-monitoring plan and self-monitoring in practice.
Environmental health services will provide you with counselling and guidance for drawing up a self-monitoring plan. If necessary, health inspectors will help you check the self-monitoring plan upon beginning the operation. The extent of the self-monitoring plan and implementation of self-monitoring will also be assessed during Oiva inspections.
