Primary ITO has completed the revision of the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR) listed above.


Date new version published                                                             April 2016


The next CMR review is planned to take place during 2019.


Summary of revision


In the Moderation Requirements section of all aforementioned CMRs, there is a statement on mandatory use of Primary ITO developed assessment material to meet the requirements of unit standard 28265, Develop, implement and review a HACCP application for a food processing operation. 


The only amendment to the CMRs is to remove the phrase ‘free of charge’ and to include the Primary ITO website for directions to access the assessment materials.


The inclusion of the phrase was an oversight and was removed to align with Primary ITO’s intentions for the assessment materials.

Requirements for consent to assess will apply with effect from April 2016.


Moderation system requirements will apply with effect from April 2016.
