Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP)
TUV USA offers certification through Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP). HACCP is a management system certification relating to the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards.
These hazards can arise from:
- The handling and processing of raw materials (i.e. animal products or vegetable products)
- Transportation and Storing of these products
Because of the danger in distributing unsafe foods, it is important for companies to ensure that their company and the companies that they do business with have the proper management controls in place to prevent foods from being handled in unsafe ways, from farm to shelf. HACCP Certification is a way for a company to provide evidence to its trade partners and consumers that they handle food with the proper caution.
