There are degrees, or relative levels of effectiveness among the various sanitary-compliant bulk material handling equipment designs in the marketplace. These design differences, while sometimes subtle in appearance, can be significant in their ability to aid in compliance contribution. Optimal compliance contribution (OCC) is attained by those application-specific, sanitary bulk material handling systems that provide the most reliable and repeatable compliance performance, require the lowest total level of resource consumption, and work to ensure the highest confidence in product safety.

A Certified Microbial Consultant’s Perspective on OCC

It could be argued that no one more thoroughly assesses sanitary processing and packaging machinery from a sanitation validation perspective than a certified microbial consultant (CMC). This unique insight has revealed to one particular CMC the true value and benefit of equipment designed for OCC. This CMC has chosen to share his perspectives with the industry through a series of video commentaries.
