Growing community concern about food safety led to define more demanding and uniform normative standards, such as International Food Standard and British Retail Consortium, allowing access of the food business to new markets. This work consisted in the review of the prerequisite “management of glasses, plastics and acrylics” for DanCake Company located in Povoa de Santa Iria, being this a requirement of the normative standards mentioned above. Therefore, all the registration of plastics, glasses and acrylics existences, within the equipments of each production line, were reviewed and completed with a risk analysis. Subsequently, the conformity of all the points covered by this prerequisite was validated, having proceeded to updates, implementation of procedures to improve the control system, as well. The identification, quantification and location of these materials in the respective register system, risk analysis and verification of conformity of all identified components are essential to the effectiveness of the control system, since these are materials can only be identifiable by visual inspection. However, the cooperation of all the staff is essential, for a food safety system to be effective given the complexity of this prerequisite in the respective company.
