Points of Analysis

HACCP concept of describes a stage, moment or operation during which it is possible to apply special mechanisms for elimination or reduce hazards to an acceptable level. Initially, you need to consider processes that include:

  • products receipt;
  • cooking food;
  • serving dishes;
  • elimination of waste.

Next, consider safety threats that can occur with each process. After you have identified all possible hazards, categorize them into biological, physical and chemical. Keep in mind that there is no common template that can be applied to identify mistakes in the food business. Many things, such as the physical structure of the business, the equipment, the components that are used and the processes, make the business unique. Even companies processing or prepare similar products do not necessarily identify the same hazards.

Critical limits are often connected with parameters that can be measured with instruments or which can be answered in the affirmative or not, for example:

  • time indicators;
  • temperature;
  • acidity;
  • shelf life.

Critical limits have a clear meaning. Defining or assigning clear values ​​to critical limits is difficult because there are many hazards, each with different allowable values. Sometimes it may be necessary to do tests or obtain data from external sources (for example, regulatory documents, expert opinions) in order to obtain values.
