The Assured Malt Standard is aimed at malt producers. By meeting this standard, malting operations demonstrate to customers and other interested parties that best practice has been followed and food safety and quality hazards are effectively controlled. All companies certified to supply Assured UK Malt will be subject to external audit of their compliance with the standard.
The standard is designed to provide maltsters with a mechanism for assuring:
- Food Safety
- Product Legality
- Good Operational Practice
- Product Quality
It aids malt producers in developing systems that demonstrate food safety, good manufacturing practice and quality management. It may also be used by customers, auditors and regulatory authorities to ensure that best practice has been followed in setting up and maintaining assured malting systems.
