The HACCP certification, that is the certificate of conformity to UNI 10854:1999, promotes the integration of health and hygiene auto-control system with the UNI EN ISO 9001 quality certification standard.
With this certification, organisations can ensure their production processes are controlled, also in observance of the latest national and Community legislation.
SERVICE DETAILSOrganisations operating in the agriculture and food market are obliged to control the food safety in order to prevent risks of alterations in product quality, characteristics and hygiene.
The HACCP food safety certification, performed by an independent company such as RINA SERVICES, identifies the critical points of the production process and defines the criteria for preventing, reducing or eliminating potential risks.
HACCP means Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points: by applying the HACCP methodology, the organisation improves its market image by publicising its commitment to the prevention of health and hygiene hazards.
