HACCP software is used by companies in the food and beverage industry for the implementation and maintenance of a program to achieve compliance with the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points system, or HACCP.
HACCP is a system designed to prevent hazards during the production process that can lead to unsafe food products. It also provides measurements to reduce hazard risks to safe levels. HACCP can be used at all stages of the food chain, such as food production, packaging, distribution, etc. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have mandatory HACCP programs for juice, meat and seafood. HACCP is not mandatory in other food industries, but it is used often on a voluntary basis.
Over time, the scope of the application of HACCP has expanded to include cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Even though HACCP focuses only on health safety issues and not product quality issues, the principles of the system form the basis of most food quality and safety assurance systems.
The seven principles of HACCP are the following:
- Conduct a hazard analysis.
- Identify critical control points.
- Establish critical limits for each critical control point.
- Establish critical control point monitoring requirements.
- Establish corrective actions.
- Establish procedures for ensuring the HACCP system is working as intended.
If you want to comply with HACCP, you also need to be aware of ISO 22000, which is the ISO standard for food safety. Whereas HACCP is a system, ISO 22000 is a standard, meaning that ISO 22000 can be used to measure the success of a company’s implementation of HACCP. Thus a lot of companies use HACCP and ISO 22000 simultaneously.
HACCP software helps companies undertake the following tasks that contribute to compliance with HAACP:
- Manage workflows
- Maintain product, hazard and safety data
- Manage hazard evaluation projects
- Identify and monitor critical control points
- Identify risks
- Perform audits
- Manage preventive and corrective actions
