Souces of knowledge


As you have been informed already, the new exam version 6 is now officially in use.

We already submitted the new exam regulation in a written version and additionally as a flow chart for your convenience.

In general the initial exam is nearly equal to the former exam version 5. The main questions deal with following topics:

Part A:  Questions about the IFS Food content, e.g. IFS definitions

Part B: Questions about legislation, basics according microbiology, cleaning and disinfection, tech scope F related issues (please see P11,P12,P13)

Part C:  Evaluation of case studies

Additionally the applicants have to attend the tech scope exam regarding their confirmed registration request.

The tech scope exam consists of a maximum of 5 tech scope parts (20 minutes per each tech scope – so in total max 100 minutes).

Tech Scope A questions are for example dealing with the technical background of tinning process, regarding the overlapping, the calculation of the time/temperature, definitions of sterilisation.

Tech Scope B questions are for example dealing with the definitions of pasteurisation, high pressure processing, hot filling, etc.

Tech Scope C questions are related to P3, P4, P5 fermentation, freeze drying, Smoking (technical issues, mode of operation), etc.

Tech Scope D questions are related to P6,P5 – cooling, freezing, etc.

Tech Scope E questions are related to P8,P9,P10 – as cleaning in place, usage of active charcoal ( technology, mode of operation) etc.

The oral examination is intended to assess the candidates’ suitability as an auditor and the candidates’ specific professional knowledge needed for the specific scopes, by analysing and evaluating a case study.

 

Please find enclosed some resources the experts used for the creation of the new questions for the new exam.
