HACCP CERTIFICATION

  1. Services detail

WHAT IS HACCP CERTIFICATION (HAZARD ANALYSIS, CRITICAL CONTROL POINTS)?

As evident from the name Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, this evidence-based approach is a food safety management system tool that provides a framework to analyze, categorize, and control identified hazards. The framework of HACCP is internationally recognized and documented by Codex Alimentarius, which assists in scrutinizing the hazards from the supply chain, processing to consumption, and consumption with adequate food safety controls.

H=Hazard (Food contamination)

A=Analysis (Figure out the source)

C=Critical (Level of danger)

C=Control (Remedial Action)

P=Point (Stage of Corrective Action)

Seven principles-based HACCP system helps you to have a control system based on food safety and makes your system reliable so that only safe food is provided to customers/consumers. In case of deviation in a system where controls in place are lost, it aids you in on-time detection with the framework of control measures to be adopted and reestablished where required.

How was this concept of HACCP started?

In 1971, this concept was presented to ensure safe food for the astronauts of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) working on their mission. The Pillsbury company generated this remarkable concept. Gradually, this concept was adopted by many other food and drink companies, and now, this is centralized and almost global.

From harvesting to consumption, i.e., throughout the supply chain worldwide, HACCP is endorsed as the most effective rational means of ensuring food safety.

Each food establishment must develop and tailor the HACCP system to its individual product processing and distribution conditions.

Benefits of HACCP certification:

Known as a widely implemented system in food sectors, the benefits of the HACCP system in place are many, including but not limited to the following:

  • Providing a platform and guidance to develop and boost food safety while reducing the risk of foodborne diseases throughout the processing & supply chain.
  • Building the confidence to provide safe food and safe food packaging to customers.
  • Facilitate the manufacturers' reduction of production costs via the least wastage.
  • Comply with statutory requirements in facilities utilizing HACCP certification.
  • Identify, trigger, mitigate, and control potential hazards and monitor them for evidence-based verification and validation of the system.
  • Provide the opportunity for improvement where system lapses are identified.
  • To stand out with the benchmarking facilities with the practical and robust base of the HACCP system.
  • Globally accepted and recognizes
  • Create a reputation in the food sector as implementing and maintaining the requirement of a worldwide accepted HACCP system.

Get to know who should adopt the HACCP Certification system.

For adopting the HACCP system and getting certified for HACCP, regardless of the size, type of food/drink, or location, it must be adopted by:

  • Food sectors of manufacturing, distribution
  • Food packaging manufacturers
  • Ingredients manufacturing that will be in direct contact with food manufacturing or be part of further food processing.
  • If your business lies under any food chain, then get your business associated with HACCP certification and let your business rank in the list of safe food chains.

FAQ's

Why is HACCP Certification important?

HACCP certification is crucial because it demonstrates a company's commitment to food safety and compliance with international standards. It helps in minimising the risk of foodborne illnesses and ensures that food products are safe for consumption. For businesses, it can enhance brand reputation, open new market opportunities, and potentially reduce liability and costs associated with food safety breaches.

Who needs HACCP Certification?

HACCP certification is essential for businesses involved in the food supply chain, including producers, processors, packagers, and distributors of food products. It is also beneficial for restaurants, cafes, and any other establishments that handle food directly. Essentially, any organisation looking to demonstrate its adherence to food safety standards should consider obtaining HACCP certification.

How do you obtain HACCP Certification?

Obtaining HACCP certification involves several steps, starting with a comprehensive review of the organization's current food safety processes. This is followed by developing a HACCP plan that identifies potential hazards, critical control points, critical limits, monitoring procedures, corrective actions, verification procedures, and record-keeping practices. After implementing the HACCP plan, organizations must undergo an audit by a recognized certification body to assess compliance with HACCP standards.

How long does HACCP Certification last?

HACCP certification typically lasts for three years. However, certified organizations must undergo surveillance audits, usually annually, to ensure ongoing compliance with HACCP standards. Failure to meet the required standards during these audits can result in the suspension or withdrawal of the certification.

What are the costs associated with obtaining HACCP Certification?

The cost of obtaining HACCP Certification can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size of the organization, the complexity of the food production processes, and the country in which the organization operates. Costs can include consultancy fees (if external help is sought), training costs, the audit fee, and any costs associated with making necessary changes to processes or equipment to comply with HACCP requirements.
