ICMSF has developed software tools:
- to determine the performance of statistical sampling plans that are used to assess the microbiological quality of batches of food, and;
- to validate the efficacy of measures to control microbial contamination of foods using the Food Safety Objective approach.
The Commission has also prepared documents that explain the use of both tools. To access these documents and to download the Programs (which run in Microsoft® Excel®), follow this link.
