(3) NZ - haccp plan development (there is a note deep in the text that the exact method of risk appraisal has been left to the user - rather evasive perhaps). http://www.nzfsa.gov...haccp/index.htm
The pre-requisite requirement for packaging in some cases is 'a letter of guarantee from the supplier.' This maybe results from a minimum prescribed official requirement. Adequate ??#
A lot of the basics in above is hardly new but I suspect that the actual method of assessing risk is still often problematical. Mad cows ??
I know - it's always easy to criticise.
# added, - Sorry, this was over-simplistic, people are very tolerant on this site. Although packaging approval seems to be effected in many ways outside Europe (hence my comment), any purchaser of plastic packaging would presumably be delighted if their supplier was BRC/IOP approved.
