HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) is a universally perceived framework for decreasing the danger of safety risks in food. A HACCP System necessitates that possible risk is perceived and controlled at a Critical point all the while.

HACCP is an administration framework where food safety is addressed through the investigation and control of organic, compound, and physical hazards from unrefined material at the point of manufacture, procuring and taking care of, to assembling, allocation and utilization of the total item.
HACCP, Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point framework, is a procedure control framework that distinguishes where risks may happen in the food creation system and establishes thorough moves to be made to keep the perils from happening.
The HACCP system is a process control system procedure and is applicable to any organization, involved in the food supply chain (producers, manufacturers, retailers, traders, suppliers, packers, shippers. The HACCP system provides the instruction to recognize food safety Hazards (Physical Hazards, Chemical Hazards & Biological Hazards), assessment of Food Safety Hazards and Food safety Risk analysis, establish the PRPs, setting of product characteristics, Critical control points, critical control limits, validation, authentication, classification of potential emergency situations related to food safety.
HACCP endeavors to stay away from dangers, instead of endeavouring to review completed items for the impacts of those dangers. The HACCP framework can be used at all phases of an evolved way of life, from creation till planning forms including, covering, delivery, and so on
How does any Food supply chain organization get a HACCP Certification?
To achieve certification by a trustworthy certification provider, the food supply chain business is required to undergo an audit or assessment of its food safety and HACCP policies and procedures. This evaluation is required to be attempted by an equipped and qualified food security examiner.
HACCP confirmation is a worldwide standard characterizing the necessity for powerful control of food safety. It is worked around seven standards: Conduct Hazard assessment of natural, compound or physical food dangers
Application / Implementation of the Principles of the HACCP System
There is a 12 Steps To Develop A HACCP Plan
- Assemble /Expertise the HACCP team within the organization
- Product Description
- Identify Intended us
- Create a Flow chart to describe the procedure
- On-Site verification of Flow chart.
- Principle 1- Conduct a Hazard Analysis
- Principle 2 - Recognize the Critical Control Points CCP
- Principle 3 – Set up critical limit(s).
- Principle 4- Set up a system to check Critical Points in CCP
- Principle 5 –Remedial action to be taken if found CCP is not under control
- Principle 6– Checking whether the HACCP system is working efficiently.
- Principle 7 – Establish record-keeping and documentation procedures.
A HACCP flow chart is a diagram of the process flow of a food supply chain operation from incoming materials to the closing stages of the product. A HACCP flow chart is normally constructed by a group commonly known as the HACCP Team or Food Safety Team.
Benefits of HACCP Certification
- Reduce the Food safety Hazards Contamination in Food.
- Minimize the possible Foodborne diseases, which may cause due by the contamination of food.
- Improve Compliance level with applicable statutory and regulatory food safety requirements
- Effective communication on food safety issues to their suppliers, and customers who is involved in the food Supply chain
- Improve the business potential among the competitor
- Minimize the cost of Food Analysis.
- Convey a degree of confidence required by consumers, retailers and buyers within the food supply chain industry
- Regular assessment assists organizations to repeatedly monitoring food safety system
- HACCP can add value to entire supply chain with improved hazard controls in an organization.
HACCP affirmation requires five stages to accomplish the underlying verification which is valid for 3 years. Following introductory accreditation, a reconnaissance review (which might be unannounced) is required in the accompanying two years.
When created and executed, a HACCP plan should to be reviewed periodically, for instance once a year. A HACCP plan should be investigated if there are changes in the production.
HACCP is required for handling MOST nourishments (January 2011)
- Meat and poultry (USDA) (9 CFR section 417)
- Juice (FDA) (21 CFR section 120)
- Seafood (FDA) (21 CFR section 123)
- Food Safety Modernization Act 2010 (FDA) requires a Food Safety Plan for all other nourishment-handling organizations at 21 U.S.C.
Foods that are ready to eat, foods that don't require any further cooking, and foods that give a spot to microorganisms to live develop and flourish are portrayed as high-chance nourishments. Instances of high-hazard foods include: cooked meat and fish. gravy, stock, sauces and soup shellfish.
HACCP & ISO 2200
There is a distinction in the middle of HACCP and ISO 22000. HACCP absolutely centers on food safety, ISO looks at business procedures and structures. ISO certification is independent, which means that an organization can decide for itself whether it wants to hold it or not.
HACCP & FSMA
HACCP focuses on preventing post-process contamination, while as the FSMA food safety plan takes an increasingly preventive focus, distinguishing potential dangers and executing suitable controls to proactively prevent contamination.
HACCP has been progressively helpful to industries other than food, such as beauty care products and pharmaceuticals. This technique, which in actuality looks to design out hazardous practices dependent on science, differs from traditional "produce and sort" quality control methods that do nothing to prevent hazards from occurring and should recognize them toward the finish of the procedure.. HACCP is centrally focused only on the health safety issues of an Item and not the quality of the Item, yet HACCP standards are the basis of most food quality and safety assurance systems.
The use of HACCP for water quality organization was first proposed around 20 years earlier. Starting there, different water quality exercises applied HACCP gauges and steps to the control of overwhelming sickness from water, and gave the reason to the Water Safety Plan (WSP) approach in the third form of the World Health Organization (WHO) report, which has been portrayed as "a strategy for altering the HACCP approach to manage drinking water structures"
