Food Safety Risk Assessment - 7 Simple Steps
Even though it has been several years since The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law, the Act still confuses a myriad of food and feed processors. Why? Because one of the continuing gray areas is that compliance with the FSMA is a separate duty from creating a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP). HACCP is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.
Remember, the HACCP itself doesn’t cover the requirements of the FSMA. Some food product types require HACCP. Therefore, it’s critical that you verify your need for generating a HACCP.
