From June 2022 Micron2 has taken over the exclusive function of auditing against the UKAS-accredited suite of STS Food Safety Standards. We have been in discussions since earlier this year to enable the smooth transition of this business from the previous provider, STS-Solutions Ltd.
Much of this function concerns the supply of foods to vulnerable groups so food safety is essential and while the STS Standards share many common aims with the BRCGS Standards, which we also provide, there are certain aspects, such as the special requirements for the control of Listeria monocytogenes that make the STS Standards unique.
Please contact us if you require any information about STS Standards and note that copies of the Standards are freely available to non-members in our Member Area (see menu for STS Standards at the top of this site).
Is the small regional standard still avalable
No we decided not to continue to the SLR system that STS previously offered. Food suppliers are encouraged to go for the SALSA Standard.
Thanks for getting back to me. I will be meeting with my clients and advise accordingly.
