Types of the post

Within SGS Digicomply there are few terms, that describe the nature of the post.

Those terms are:

  • Regulation

"Containing mandatory legal requirements; published by official authority."

  • Guidance

"Containing explanatory notes to requirements; published by authorities, industry associations, international organisations, internal policies; not legally binding but "useful to know" to achieve compliance".

  • News

"Any other type of information (i.e. not Regulation nor Guidance) published in medias different from social medias, scientific journals. Includes Alerts and recalls."

  • Scientific

"Risk assessment reports and publication as well as peer-reviewed scientific articles; scientific-based content which may have an impact on food safety matters and Early Warning strategies (e.g. EFSA scientific publications and opinions)."
