Implementing an effective Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety management system is a central priority for today’s food and beverage producers, as it is critical to complying with the standards of domestic and international regulatory authorities, governments and consumers.
Flowcrete UK has produced a white paper entitled What is a HACCP Food Safety Management System and How Does it Relate to Flooring? to help food and beverage businesses learn about this preventive risk assessment tool and ensure that all facilities comply with its guidelines.
As the white paper explains, being HACCP compliant is vital to fulfilling the increasingly strict requirements of industry regulators. This is exemplified by the Food Safety & Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013 which reiterates Article 5 (1) of Regulation 852/2004 of the European Parliament: "Food business operators put in place, implement and maintain a permanent procedure or procedures based on the HACCP principles." Parallel legislation is also in force in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
In the white paper readers will be able to find out what flooring characteristics and certifications they need to look out for in order to ensure that floors within production, processing and storage areas live up to the HACCP standard.
