Personally i wouldn't waste my money.
I find you can do it just as well in Excel, and use something like Sharepoint to control your documents.

I've never seen MyHaccp and have no idea how it works, so i'd be interested to see what others think.

Although managing your documents can easily be done with Excel I doubt you can have your control sheets filled out with it. MyHaccp is not only a management tool but it is also used by my employees to fill out their daily control sheets. It is complete with electronic signatures, dates, time that can not be tampered with. When they fill out their control sheets the information is gathered on our servers, backed up, and give me full access to make file/on site verifications that will be fully documented. The system also uses a form of Outlook Calendar for scheduling control sheets and inspections so unless they are absent they will not miss one.

On a side not it has also eliminated the use of paper control sheets so +1 for trees :biggrin:

I am regularly taking samples of food for Microbiological analysis. However, I do not have a formal documented policy. I need to develop a formal documented policy which should include the following:



  • Products to be sampled.
  • Frequency/ timetable for sampling
  • Number of samples taken per batch
  • Definition of batch
  • Reasons for sampling
  • Microbiological organisms tested for
  • Laboratory used for testing
  • Microbiological Guidelines used to test your results against
Can anyone help me with a template of one please?

Dear Jaywills,

If you are currently taking samples you already know the following:

  • Products to be sampled.
  • Frequency/ timetable for sampling
  • Microbiological organisms tested for
  • Laboratory used for testing
Start with putting all this information in a sheet.
Maybe you already have something on paper somewhere. Maybe it is just that small yellow paper next to your computer screen, which tells you when to take samples.

keep it simple to fit you.


Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor
