Dear Rexdasan,

 

Here is a useful link for you, which explains the definition a the "Critical limit" very clearly.

Hi rex,

 

Are you familiar with haccp ?

 

from Codex -
 

 

Critical limit = A criterion that separates acceptability from unacceptability.

First of all, the critical limit has to be measurable, preferably by testing and not just by visual inspection.  If the number from the test is not acceptable, then the product is not acceptable.  You then need to write procedures for how you test, who does the testing, how often you test, where you test, what is the acceptable range, etc.
