HACCP is a preventive system of food control aimed at food safety assurance. HACCP is a documented and verifiable approach for the identification of hazards, preventive measures and critical control points, and the implementation of a monitoring system. The internationally agreed principles of HACCP can be applied to all sectors of food and drink manufacturing, distribution, retailing and catering; they may be applied to currently marketed and new products. The purpose of this guide is to provide a simple, practical tool to apply the HACCP methodology and to promote a common basis throughout Europe for the implementation of food safety assurance.
