Management of change (MOC)

MOC encompasses the proper control of changes in hardware, software, procedures, raw materials, materials of construction, packaging, etc. which is not ‘like for like’ and which may change the hazards and/or risks of a process. It involves many aspects; how to recognize change is taking place or has taken place and (proactively) when change is needed, how to request, review, approve, provide training and safe implementation of the change.
