How to get HACCP

HACCP Certification in Bahrain

To obtain HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) certification in Bahrain, organizations typically engage in a process similar to other certification standards. Here’s a general overview of how the process works:

  1. Preparation: The organization prepares its food safety management system according to the principles of HACCP. This involves identifying potential hazards associated with food production processes, determining critical control points, establishing control measures, and developing monitoring procedures.
  2. Selection of a Certification Body: The organization selects a certification body accredited by a recognized accreditation body. In Bahrain, organizations might look for certification bodies recognized by the Gulf Accreditation Center (GAC) or other international accreditation bodies.
  3. Initial Assessment (Gap Analysis): The certification body conducts an initial assessment or gap analysis to evaluate the organization’s food safety management system against the requirements of the HACCP standard. This assessment helps identify areas where the organization’s practices may not align with HACCP principles.
  4. Corrective Actions: Based on the findings of the initial assessment, the organization implements corrective actions to address any identified non-conformities or areas for improvement in its food safety management system.
  5. Formal Assessment (Certification Audit): Once the organization believes it has addressed any deficiencies, the certification body conducts a formal assessment, also known as a certification audit. This audit thoroughly evaluates the organization’s food safety management system to ensure compliance with HACCP principles.
  6. Certification Decision: Following the certification audit, the certification body reviews the audit findings and decides whether to grant HACCP certification to the organization. If the organization meets all the requirements, the certification body issues the HACCP certificate.
  7. Surveillance Audits: After certification, the certification body may conduct periodic surveillance audits to ensure the organization continues to maintain its food safety management system and comply with HACCP principles.

Regarding your question about “qualitcert” issuing certifications, it’s crucial to note that the certification process involves certification bodies accredited by recognized accreditation bodies. While “qualitcert” may be a hypothetical entity you mentioned, in reality, organizations seeking certification should engage with accredited certification bodies recognized for their competence and impartiality in conducting HACCP certification audits.
