1 Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points HACCPHazard Analysis and Critical Control Points
2 HACCP DefinitionA system which identifies, evaluates and controls hazards which are significant for food safetyDeveloped in early 1970’s in USA for NASA and US ArmyIts purpose is to ensure safety rather than detect.
8 HACCP Principles Conduct a hazard analysis Identify critical control points (CCP’s)Establish critical limits for each CCPEstablish CCP monitoring requirementsEstablish corrective action to be takenEstablish effective recording proceduresEstablish verification procedures
9 HACCP Working Stages Define terms of reference Select HACCP team Describe the productIdentify intended useDraw flow diagram of processVerify flow diagram on siteList all hazards associated with each process step and list preventative measures to control hazards
10 HACCP Working Stages (2) Apply HACCP decision tree to each stepEstablish critical limits and target values for each CCPEstablish a monitoring system for each CCPEstablish a corrective action planEstablish record keeping and documentationEstablish verification mechanismsReview HACCP plan at regular intervals
11 Critical Limits Each CCP must have a target value and critical limit Typical CriteriaTime/temperatureMoisture contentwater activitypH etc.
12 Monitoring Scheduled measurement of CCP against target values Methods to ensure within specification and therefore in controlResponsibilitiesWho, when, how to act
13 Record Keeping Team members & responsibilities Product description and intended useFlow diagram indicating CCP’sHazards and preventative measuresCritical limitsMonitoring systemsCorrective actionRecord keeping proceduresVerification procedures
14 Implementation Key issues Commitment Resources Information Ownership of planTrainingMaintenance and review
15 Benefits Systematic Preventative Targets resources to critical areas - CCP’sApplicable to all types of hazardIncreased confidence over product safetyComplements ISO 9000Increases Scientific basis for inspectionCompliance with “due diligence”
