As per ISO 22000 requirements -The organization will have a documented system in place and fully implemented throughout the facility that includes –

  • PRP (Prerequisite program)
  • Food Safety Hazard Analysis
  • HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point)
  • Interactive communication
  • Food Safety management system
  • Legal compliance related to Food Safety requirements

 

 

The ISO 22000 standard contains the specific requirements to be addressed by the Food Safety Management System. The standard requires food safety management system processes including –

  • Traceability for product identification throughout the process
  • Procedure for withdrawals and Recall
  • Control of monitoring and measuring equipment
  • Correction and corrective actions
  • Conducting internal audit and management reviews
  • Updating and Improving the system

 

 

 

HACCP requirements

The 7 principles of HACCP

  • Hazard Analysis identifying significant hazards are likely to occur, that can be eliminated, prevented or controlled by HACCP plan
  • Identification of Critical Control Points where control can be applied for identified hazard and it can be eliminated, prevented, controlled or reduced to acceptable levels.
  • Establishing critical limits which are maximum/minimum value to which biological, chemical or physical parameters must be controlled at a CCP to prevent, eliminate or reduce to an acceptable level.
  • CCP Monitoring for the measurement of critical limits at each critical control point.
  • Establishing Corrective Action that followed when a deviation in critical limit occurs
  • Verification determines the validity of the HACCP plan and that the system is operating according to the plan.
  • Recordkeeping that can be used as the conformity of safe food product.

 

 

What is OPRP in ISO 22000

the operational prerequisite program (OPRP) as a plan that focuses on food safety. OPRP is a “PRP identified by the hazard analysis as essential in order to control the likelihood of food safety hazards and the contamination of food safety hazards in the product or in the processing environment. Further explanation while processing the different types of Food Products in the organization there could be the possibility of Contamination together – which is known as OPRP . For Example – Cooking the Vehitbale and Meat Product Together in one Kitchen and using the one Spoon for Both during Cooking.

 

 

What’s the difference between CCP, PRP, and OPRP

This describing the Food product cHaracteristic and Process Flow Chart – the critical Control Points CP identifies in the process where control can be applied and is essential to prevent or eliminate a food safety hazard or reduce it to an acceptable level.

A prerequisite program (PRP) is a program that addresses situations within the operation that ensure that possible hazards are controlled. Effective prerequisite programs are directly linked not only to the control of identified hazards but also to the effectiveness of the HACCP program overall.

OPRP is a “PRP identified by the hazard analysis as essential in order to control the likelihood of food safety hazards and the contamination of food safety hazards in the product or in the processing environment.

 

 

 

What is CP and CCP?

A Control Point or “CP” is any step in the flow of food where a physical, chemical or biological hazard can be controlled. Whereas A Critical Control Point or “CCP” is the last step where you can intervene to prevent, eliminate or reduce a hazard to an acceptable limit.

 

 

What are the 4 types of food hazards?

Microbiological hazards include bacteria, yeasts, molds, and viruses.

Chemical hazards include water, food contact materials, cleaning agents, pest control substances, contaminants (environmental, agricultural and process), pesticides, biocides, and food additives.

Physical hazards include glass, packaging, jewelry, pest droppings, screws etc.

Allergens are the risk associated with the unintended presence of allergens due to cross-contamination.
