(HACCP) Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points Management System

Being healthy is a person's most basic need and right. Food products, on the other hand, are one of the easiest influences on our health. Therefore, the safety of the food product is an absolute demand of the consumer using the product and it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to fully management. So, according to the quality system terminology, it is necessary to look at food safety as an absolute and unchangeable quality parameter.


A manager must establish, maintain and support the Food Safety Control System if she/he wants to ensure that the production in compliance with hygiene standards and that every batch of products she/he produces and sells are safe.


Given the ability to analyze only a very small amount of the product, it is important to know that the continuous analysis system alone does not provide complete assurance. Therefore, there is a need for a preventive method that handles all process steps more systematically. Here, HACCP concept is a system that brings a systematic and logical approach to this need. Food Safety, which is one of the most important issues in integration with the European Union, also appears in the audits of official institutions such as the Ministry of Agriculture and in the requests of the Food Codex in a way that includes almost all the requests of this standard.


HACCP is a food safety concept based on the establishment and protection of a properly functioning system in order to present reliable products to the consumer. Starting from the supply of raw materials in a food chain, by conducting hazard analysis at every stage and point of the food chain such as food preparation, processing, production, packaging, storage and transportation, determining the critical control points where necessary and monitoring these points by ensuring the protection of the system that prevents any problems before they occur. It is a food safety system that ensures the production of reliable foods in accordance with the norms and can be applied to organizations of all sizes.


HACCP consists of the following generally accepted 7 basic principles:


1. Hazard analysis

2. Determination of critical control points

3. Establishing critical limits

4. Establishment of a system for monitoring critical control points

5. Monitoring of uncontrolled points and corrective actions, if any

6. Establishing control procedures to control the effective functioning of the system

7. Establishing a documentation system covering procedures and records for the implementation of these principles.
