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.
