    Active Standard: E2773 - 11

    Developed by Subcommittee: E60.02 | Committee E60 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK46901

    1. Rationale

    Suggested change: 4.2.3.3 The supplier shall conduct waste audits annually for all food and food-related waste to identify waste streams, and the supplier shall develop a plan for waste reduction and increased diversion. REASON FOR CHANGE: Waste Audits are a valuable tool to determine waste reduction and diversion strategy. However, they are also very time and resource intensive. Therefore it is recommended to conduct the audit annually. In addition, other standards within the E60.02 require the audit annually. Therefore the change to an annual waste audit would create consistency through the standards.
