HACCP concept & risk analysis

Food safety in accordance with the HACCP concept

Regulation 852/2004 on food hygiene came into effect on 1 January 2006. Article 5 of this regulation requires food business operators to establish, implement and maintain and constantly adopt a HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points)/ self-control system.

All companies that come into contact with foodstuffs must now successfully establish and maintain a procedure based on the HACCP principles and adequately demonstrate compliance to the food control authorities. The HACCP concept is a systematic way of ensuring food safety. The process is a departure from the final inspection of the product to process control. The transition from final inspection to preventive measures poses entirely new challenges to mass caterers. The new legislation attaches particular importance to the implementation of a detailed risk analysis and the presentation of its results. This is precisely where interfaces to other food standards calling for a similar approach (e.g. IFS, ISO 22000 ...) exist.

HACCP Hazard Analysis

Anyone who manufactures, processes, stores, transports or supplies food and/or luxury products, is obliged to have a concept, which includes a risk and hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) in accordance with VO EU 852/2004.

This concept may include for example:
Assembling a HACCP team
Organisation of training courses
The guarantee of good manufacturing practice in the fields of product and production hygiene
Staff hygiene, cleaning and disinfection, pest control

The VO EU 852/2004 also demands you create flow charts to be regularly reviewed and adapted to the respective requirements.
