RIAMS Updates July 2013

August 1, 2013
Latest News

This month we introduced a bi-weekly roundup of what’s new on the system. RIAMS News will run on alternate Mondays during the month giving a summary of changes. If there are any major updates these will continue to be covered by news items at the time to keep you up to date with what?s happening. You will have noticed that the document counter on each module across the RIAMS site has been reinstated having initially been removed to temporarily resolve speed issues.

Amongst the documents added this month were copies of the Food Standards Agency?s (FSA) Multi Annual National Control Plan (MANCPA) and a report of the FSA?s investigation into incidents of adulteration of comminuted beef products with horse meat DNA. There are also new procedures within the Housing Health and Safety Rating Systems documents sub section and an update to the procedure on Cooling Tower/Evaporative Condenser Inspections. ?A full list of new content and updates can be seen below.
