Non Food Certification & Endorsement
The HACCP International Endorsement Programme is aimed at organisations that are required to supply ‘food safe' equipment, machinery, supplies and services to the food industry. Non-food items and services that are used extensively in food manufacturing, handling and supply can have a significant impact on food safety and operators of HACCP based food safety programmes often look for assurance as to the appropriateness of such items.
Our methodology is one whereby we simply, practically and scientifically assess the product(s) or product range(s) with regard to all facets of food safety; their compatibility with HACCP based food safety programmes and their contribution to food safety. The process includes examination of the design, manufacture, materials, instructions, delivery, storage, accuracy, labelling, food safety claims and any other relevant food safety matters.
Certificated products generally need to be:
- Well designed with ‘food-safe’ characteristics
- Non toxic (or appropriate levels of toxicity)
- Easy to clean (or appropriate for use)
- Likely to reduce the risk of any form of contamination
- Designed for a low consequence of error in use.
We offer manufacturers, distributors and, importantly, their customers, a third party assessment and endorsement of material safety, accuracy and appropriateness in a food application - issued by an independent organisation of food safety experts.
Providing the required food safety criteria are met, HACCP International will provide an endorsement and widely recognised certification for the selected products.
Those products or services can be promoted as food safe and endorsed by HACCP International. Many organisations supplying appropriate and food safe products to the food industry proudly display the HACCP International Food Safety logo in their facilities, on their products, on packaging and in promotional material. The logo is well known, highly recognised and understood by industry to be synonymous with an active and proven dedication to consumer food safety and ‘fitness for purpose'
Products or services licensed to carry the HACCP International food safety mark also benefit with access to a marketing platform including mail-outs, advertising, marketing initiatives and web-based support.
HACCP International's approval and endorsement should be considered by suppliers that:
- Are quality aware and responsive to customers’ needs
- Want to capitalise on the ‘food-safe’ status of their product
- Wish to drive the marketing of their product through certification by a recognised and practical body.
