HACCP Certification: Your Guide to Food Safety

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a food safety management system that helps businesses identify and prevent potential food safety hazards. It is an internationally recognized system that is mandatory for many food businesses in Australia. Quality Associates, a leading provider of HACCP certification, training, and HACCP system development services, is here to guide you through the process of getting HACCP accreditation and ensure that your business is in compliance with food safety regulations.

What is HACCP and How to Get Accreditation

HACCP is a preventative food safety management system that focuses on identifying and controlling potential hazards that could occur during the production, processing, and distribution of food. The system is based on 7 principles:

  1. Conduct a hazard analysis
  2. Determine the critical control points (CCPs)
  3. Establish critical limits
  4. Implement monitoring procedures
  5. Implement corrective actions
  6. Implement verification procedures
  7. Implement a record-keeping and documentation system

To achieve HACCP accreditation, a business must conduct a hazard analysis, establish critical control points and implement procedures to control those hazards. This process must be verified by a qualified HACCP auditor. Quality Associates offers HACCP auditing services that go above and beyond a tick-box audit to ensure that your business is fully compliant with HACCP regulations.
