How do you carry out assessment of TACCP, VACCP and ready your organization for FSSC 22000 V5

While HACCP helps you identify the scientific reasons to reduce Food safety incidents, TACCP and VACCP have different intent.

TACCPThreat Assessment Critical Control Point have been incorporated in many FSMS standards such as FSSC 22000 Version 5, BRC, SQF and many more in the form of Food defence mechanism.

Threats foreseen or unforeseen from various sources such as Disgruntled individuals, Extremists, Opportunist, Cyber criminal, Extortionist are assessed and prioritised. This is also referred to Behaviour Motivated Adulteration.

Top Priority threats are considered as Critical control point and treated or terminated using Protective controls. These controls have to be reviewed atleast annually or as and when an incident occurs. Guidelines such as PAS 96 can be used as a reference and basis to assess the threats and prioritise them.

 

VACCP – Vulnerability Assessment Critical control point have also been incorporated in BRC, FSSC 22000 Version 5.

Organisations who are certified to FSSC 22000 V3.1 and upgrading to FSSC 22000 V5 should ensure that a separate Assessment is carried out emphasising on Economically Motivated Adulteration EMA. All such risks are assessed and prioritised to ensure that appropriate Protective controls are established, followed with pre determined review mechanism.

With more and more food safety incidents occurring across the world due to poor security and administrative controls, it is imperative for the food industry to implement a strong and robust management system to control and demonstrate a Food and drink defence management system.

PAS 96 was published in coordination with major food manufacturers and launched in October 2014.

The main highlights of this standard

  1. TACCP – Threat Assessment Critical control point. Although most food companies possess a HACCP, this tool revolves around the various vulnerabilities and methodologies to control the same. TACCP is carried out by a team from Security, HR and Administrator to understand the various possibilities of threat and control of the same.
  2. Understanding the attacker – From Internal employees to Interested parties, motive of these attackers could be from sabotage to money extortion.
  3. Review of controls on assessment. – All controls needs to be assessed and improved over time to maintain low incidents and provide safe food to consumers.

Food Safety – Going the extra mile with ISO 22000 recognition and beyond

By far the greatest challenge for an enterprise involved in the business of food, is maintaining the quality of the food itself through its lifecycle. An enterprise involved in manufacturing food or plating it up for consumption has to essentially manage the quality and thus the safety of the food for its consumer. A solid food management system implementation goes a long way in guaranteeing sustainability for the business enterprise in the long run. You may be located anywhere in the food cycle, be it as a manufacturer of seeds, harvesting in a farm or literally cooking up tasty dishes at your restaurant – the ISO 22000 standard that addresses the issue of food safety management.

ISO 22000 & FSSC 22000 Version 5 – Recognition

WHO estimates that more than 200 diseases spread from poor food handling practices alone. The ISO 22000 Certification is an index of the highest international standard of food safety that you can implement in your organization. If you are a food maker and if you wish to be recognized by Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), then you may want to implement FSSC 22000 Certification, which is a Food Safety System Certification for your organization.

Enterprises that have implemented ISO 22000 have seen a drastic turnaround in their businesses. The greatest benefit of this implementation is that you embrace a preventive approach as against a damage-control approach towards hygiene and safety, which can have a positive impact on your bottom line. Besides, once implemented and practiced, you can focus all your energies towards running and enhancing your core business priorities.

Considering that the food chain works on a cascading model, if you are at the top of the food chain, it is all the more critical that you keep contamination at bay, else, the quality issue will cascade down the chain. Not that the criticality of hygiene diminishes if you are in the middle or bottom of the chain. For instance, if you are into packaging or shelving, the quality management process which has been religiously maintained thus far, would be compromised solely because of your inefficiency.

A recall of your product from the market or a rejection or return from your client can dent the image of your organization in the marketplace.

In today’s globalized, competitive economy, the ISO 22000 certification stands you apart, giving you the edge of transparency and commitment.
