HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points. These are guidelines to ensure that food remains contamination free by making sure that all food operations are executed hygienically. Companies that wish to comply with HACCP standards can use these guidelines to trace all food product stages in their company and to map out all possible contamination risks. Then, measures have to be taken by the company itself to avoid any contamination. From that moment on, the company can ask TÜV NORD INTEGRA to investigate their operating procedures. If TÜV NORD INTEGRA is convinced that adequate food safety guarantees are offered, a HACCP certificate can be issued.
