Introduction

A HACCP system allows you to identify hazards and have controls in place to manage these during production throughout your supply chain. The HACCP scheme meets the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) criteria-developed by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization to put together international food standards, guidelines and codes of practice to ensure fair trade. It can also be used to support standard requirements for the management, such as ISO 22000 Food Safety Management.

HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is an internationally accepted technique along the food supply chain to prevent microbiological, chemical, and physical contamination.

The HACCP technique does so by defining the threats, setting critical control points, setting critical limits and ensuring control measures are checked, tested, and tracked prior to implementation.

Successful implementation of HACCP will improve companies' ability to: protect and reinforce brands and private labels, promote customer trust and comply with regulatory and business requirements.

The first step is to make a pledge. The next step is to learn about the Critical Control Point Hazard Analysis (HACCP) system which allows you to develop and implement your own quality system. HACCP is the world's leading food production device for monitoring food safety and quality risks.

HACCP does this by identifying risks and ensuring that pre-implementation controls are validated, verified and monitored.

Implementation and certification require expertise from people with a recognized reputation, implementation of HACCP systems, and training. NCHC has trainers and auditors certified to help companies implement HACCP systems.
