Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point – HACCP
A HACCP System requires that Potential Hazards are identified and controlled at specific points in the process. This includes biological, chemical or physical hazards. Any company involved in the manufacturing, processing or handling of food products can use HACCP to minimize or eliminate food safety hazards in their product.
Implementing a HACCP System requires that both Prerequisite Programs and HACCP Plans are implemented.
Prerequisite programs are programs that are put in place in the facility to control hazards in the environment, preventing contamination of the product. Prerequisite programs ensure a hygienic environment, and good manufacturing processes for personnel that reduce the risk of contamination of the food product.
HACCP Plans are prepared for each process or product, and identify possible hazards and controls in place to make sure the hazards are eliminated or controlled to ensure acceptable levels in the food product.
Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) Certification instantly demonstrates to customers your commitment to producing or trading in safe food. This evidence-based approach can be particularly beneficial when you are subjected to inspection by regulatory authorities or stakeholders.
A HACCP certificate will give your business improved credibility and recognition. This can be used by any organization directly or indirectly involved in the food chain including food service providers (canteens, restaurants, fast food chains, caterers, hospitals, hotels, etc.), farms, fisheries, dairies, processors of food for both human and livestock consumption and supporting services such as transporters and distributors.
Organizations that implement HACCP must comply with GMP, Good Manufacturing Practices, as they are a mandatory requirement included within the HACCP standard. However, it is possible to certify each individually.
