Status:

Completed

Commencement Date:

January, 2001

Project Duration:

24 months

Abstract:

The objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness with which Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point (HACCP) has been implemented and maintained in food manufacturing plants in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Where inadequacies in implementation or maintenance of the HACCP system were highlighted, the study sought to identify the contributory factors and make specific recommendations to overcome these limitations. The study was unique in that it involved an in-depth, two-day evaluation of HACCP at a manufacturing site.
