Mauritas provides Food Safety and Information Security Accreditation workshops

The Mauritius Accreditation Service (Mauritas) together with its development partner, L’agence Française de Dévelopement (AFD) is currently implementing a project for the extension of the accreditation programme for certification bodies involved in the certification of Food Security and Information Security Management Systems with the assistance of the Norwegian Accreditation (NA). 

An awareness session on Certification Body Accreditation on Food Safety and information Security was organized followed by a one-day workshop on Information Security and a one-day workshop on Food Safety for potential technical assessors/experts of Mauritas.  The training programme was organized by Mauritas 14 – 16 March 2012 with Mr. Sigbjorn Gregusson and Professor Svien Johan Knapsbog as resource persons subcontracted by NA for this project.

The targeted audience for the awareness seminar was selected potential assessors/experts and stakeholders involved in accreditation.  A total of 21 participants attended the awareness seminar.  The participants for the workshops were selected potential  assessors/experts and staff of Mauritas.  A pool of 10 technical assessors/experts and 3 staff of Mauritas  was trained on the requirements of the International Standards ISO/IEC 27006 and ISO/TS 22003 during the Workshops.

The expected outcome from the Workshops and Seminar was to provide opportunity to the potential assessors/experts and Mauritas staff to get familiarized with the requirements of the international standards.  The next steps should trigger Mauritas to look for possibilities for the potential assessors/experts, to follow on-site training by observing real assessments of certification bodies in the area of Food Safety and Information Security.
