What is this unit about


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to receive and store stock. It requires the ability to check and take delivery of stock, other than food, and to appropriately store, rotate and maintain the quality of stock items.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.

This unit has commonality with SITHCCC003B Receive and store kitchen supplies, which deals specifically with the receipt and storage of food items and related food safety issues. The control and ordering of stock levels is covered in SITXINV002A Control and order stock.

This unit describes a fundamental administrative function for the tourism and hospitality industries and applies to the full range of industry sectors and environments.

Stock control systems might be manual, but increasingly stock control is computerised. This unit covers any type of stock, other than food items.

The receipt and storage of stock is undertaken by frontline operational personnel who work under close supervision and guidance from others. They would be required to apply little discretion and judgement because they operate using predefined organisational procedures. They would report any stock-related discrepancies for the action of a higher level staff member.
