Verification: The act of reviewing, inspecting, testing, checking, auditing, or otherwise establishing and documenting whether items, processes, services, or documents conform to specified requirements.

Verification is the detailed review of all food safety and quality system elements to confirm that they are effectively developed, documented, implemented, monitored and reviewed. It is important that all food safety and quality system elements, including documented policies, procedures, training, Food Defence plans and their operational applications are verified on an ongoing scheduled basis. The verification process commonly includes a defined schedule for which verification activities are required, how often they are conducted, who is responsible and detailed documented procedures for each nominated verification activity.

The general goal of an established verification process is to ensure any systemic non-conformance issues are identified and rectified within an appropriate time-frame. When non-conformance issues are identified through the verification process, Corrective Actions and Preventative Actions should be implemented to ensure they do not impact upon the effectiveness of the food safety and quality system.

The following examples of verification activities may be applicable to Food Defence:
- Review of the Food Defence policy;
- Review of Food Defence development procedures;
- Review of Food Defence implementation procedures and work instructions;
- Review of Food Defence monitoring procedures;
- Review of Food Defence monitoring records;
- Review of Food Defence corrective and preventative action procedures;
- Review of the Food Defence verification schedule;
- Review of Food Defence verification procedures;
- Review of the Food Defence validation schedule;
- Review of Food Defence validation procedures;
- Review of Food Defence training procedures;
- Review of Food Defence performance since the last review and historically;
- Analytical testing of product or process to ensure the effectiveness of Food Defence;
- Inclusion of Food Defence as an agenda item within the Management Review Process.

If your food business supplies foodstuffs manufactured to a customer’s specifications, it is important to consider any specific Food Defence Verification requirements in relation to their items.
