What is HACCP?

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point.

The HACCP system is an internationally recognized system used to manage food safety. It has been endorsed by the Codex Alimentarius Commission* as a tool that can be used to systematically identify hazards specific to individual products and processes and describe measures for their control to ensure the safety of fish and fish products. The HACCP system is a dynamic system, capable of accommodating change such as changes in equipment design, processing procedures, and technological advancements.
