It’s simple and cost effective.
Getting HACCP Certification typically includes a three-stage process from initial enquiry through to the final certification decision.
Stage One Audit
This first stage looks much like a gap audit, the focus is on our assessors learning about your systems and benchmarking them to the nominated standard(s). Issues to be addressed are included in your report.
Stage Two Audit
This time we focus on how well your business has implemented your processes. Are your systems being followed, do your people understand what is expected of them, are you achieving your objectives. Is risk being managed appropriately, are the needs of stakeholders such as clients being met. It is an administrative process and hence HSE will issue the list of required documentation.
Our auditor makes a recommendation for HACCP certification, based on your Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits, to an independent HACCP Certification Manager who reviews all the audit information to make the decision to grant certification.
Once approved for certification, we issue your certificate for you to display in your office or worksite as well as a logo for you to use on your website and products, where required.
We look after it all from your audit to your certification decision and issuing certificates.
In order to maintain your certification, there are ongoing surveillance audits that are required no less than on an annual basis. Then every 3 years there is a re-certification audit which replaces the surveillance assessment.
We find that client’s welcome the review as it can keeps systems working well, identifies problems and ensures legislative compliance is maintained.
