Overview:

HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) is designed to prevent, reduce or eliminate potential biological, chemical and physical food safety hazards, including those caused by cross-contamination.

During the development of a HACCP system, potential hazards are identified and control measures are implemented at specific points in the manufacturing process.

HACCP:

 Provides a more systematic approach to ensuring food safety than traditional inspection procedures

 Places more responsibility for ensuring food safety on the food manufacturer than traditional inspection programs

 Is based on science, rather than simply past experience or subjective judgment

 Focuses on preventing problems before they occur, rather than trying to detect failures through end-product testing.

HACCP is internationally recognized as the primary means for enhancing food safety throughout the food chain, and is increasingly being used around the world.
