HACCP: SEVEN PRINCIPLES

The seven principles of HACCP:
1)    Analyse hazards

2)    Identify critical control points

3)    Establish critical limits for each control point

4)    Establish procedures to monitor the critical control points

5)    Establish corrective actions to be taken if monitoring shows that a critical limit has not been maintained.

Process Steps    FOOD SAFETY HAZARD AND CAUSE    CONTROL MEASURES    CRITICAL
PROCEDURES    MONITORING PROCEDURES    CORRECTIVE ACTION
