3.3 HACCP Charts
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NOW
- Having worked through the Flow Diagram section of
this manual, you will now have identified all the process steps in your
business. There is a HACCP Chart in this section for each process step. Remove
any HACCP Charts, which are not relevant to your business.
- Read the contents of each remaining HACCP Chart, which will indicate
which House Rules apply at each process step. To make this task easier, Link
Boxes have been provided at the bottom of each HACCP Chart indicating the
House Rules relevant to each process step.
For Example, the Link Box on the 'Purchase, Receipt/Delivery, Collect'
HACCP Chart includes
|House Rules References
Training, Cleaning, Temperature Control, Cross Contamination Prevention and Stock
- The House Rules relevant to 'Purchase, Receipt/Delivery,
Collect' are therefore, Training, Cleaning, Temperature Control, Cross
Contamination Prevention and Stock Control. In the House Rules Section of
the manual, you will find that there will be a sub-section for each of these
subjects. In each of these sub-sections you will be given guidance and then
be asked to write your House Rules to indicate how you manage each of these
subjects in your business.
- Now use the HACCP Charts to decide upon the records which
are relevant to your business. Remember that if you have recording forms/records
already drawn up for your business, check to make sure that they cover the
same areas that are included in the example forms which can be found in the
Records Section of this manual.
- Consider the Corrective
Actions listed in the HACCP Charts for each process step and check to see
if they are appropriate for your business. You may wish to customise the
HACCP Charts by adding in other Corrective Actions, which are appropriate
to your business.
- If you carry out a process step in your business not covered in the HACCP
Charts, a HACCP Chart template can be found at the end of this section
for your use.
|ONCE YOU HAVE IDENTIFIED AND READ ALL THE HACCP
CHARTS THAT ARE RELEVANT TO YOUR BUSINESS, REMEMBER TO COMPLETE AND SIGN
THE HACCP CHART SECTION OF THE ACTION PLAN.
