Dubai to enforce PIC programme from January 2014
- United Arab Emirates: Saturday, September 29 - 2012 at 03:11
The Food Control Department at the Dubai municipality has announced trained and certified food safety managers will be mandatory for over 2,000 food trading companies in Dubai from January 2013, Khaleej Times has reported. The municipality would strictly ensure Person-in-Charge (PICs) at trading firms from next year, said the director of the department, Khalid Mohammed Al Awadhi. "We were supposed to launch the PIC programme for the trading sector this year. But, we had to postpone it due to certain practical difficulties. We have now decided to launch it from the beginning of next year," he said. The civic body mandated PIC in trading companies so that they can liaise with exporters to avoid non-compliance with local regulations and reduce food wastage due to rejection of imported food.
