Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a food safety programme based on the principle of fault avoidance. It is a scientific, rational and systematic approach that helps businesses in Singapore identify, assess and control hazards from raw material production to final product use. It consists of 7 principles that outline how your organisation can establish, implement and maintain a HACCP plan.
Principles of HACCP
- Perform a hazard analysis: Identify and assess potential food safety hazards that could make food unsafe for consumption and devise appropriate preventive measures to control them.
- Identify critical control points (CCPs): Determine specific points, steps, or procedures in the manufacturing process where control measures can be implemented to prevent, eliminate, or reduce food safety hazards to an acceptable level.
- Establish critical limits for each CCP: Define the maximum or minimum threshold that hazards must be controlled within to ensure food safety.
- Establish monitoring requirements for CCPs: Implement ongoing monitoring activities to ensure that the process remains within the CCP and the necessary controls are in place and functioning as intended.
- Define corrective actions: Define actions to be taken when monitoring indicates a deviation from critical limits to prevent the distribution of unsafe or adulterated products.
- Determine procedures for ensuring the effectiveness of the HACCP system: Validate and verify the effectiveness of the HACCP system.
- Establish record-keeping procedures: Maintain necessary documentation to demonstrate compliance with Singapore’s regulatory requirements and provide evidence of a well-functioning HACCP system.
