Dear,
I have to prepare a project on hazard analysis in traceability. It should be a generic model like HACCP or ISO 9001 which can be applicable to any food industry for hazard analysis in traceability process. I am confused how to start it, how to establish and arrange the topics and flow diagrams, while making this project. Can any one help me plz. I wil really appreciate for all of you .

Regards,

Atique

Dear Atique,

Yr project seems a little strange. I think it is more usual to see the requirement reversed, eg describe the necessity and implementation of traceability as related to hazard analysis. ?

There are various “drivers” for organisations to establish traceability systems, of which risk management via hazard analysis / HACCP techniques is one, eg see pg16 of this overview link,
http://www.nzte.govt...ity-report3.pdf.

Or

http://www.selamat.n.....ty System.pdf

Also did you know there is a specific ISO standard on traceability (22005). This may help you, eg it includes some generic objectives like -

1. to support food safety

2. to meet customer specification(s);

3. to determine the history or origin of the product;

4. to facilitate the withdrawal and/or recall of products;

5. to identify the responsible organizations in the feed and food chain;

6 . to facilitate the verification of specific information about the product

All these are potential requirements in a HACCP system

Hi charles,
Thanks for your reply. Its my project for MSc and my profesor has assigned me this topic. I know there is a lot of work on traceabilty and hazard analysis separately, but i could not find any work on critical analysis in traceability. I talked with my professor and he told me that just make a generic model , that what are the critical points to be taken while doing traceability, or what are the critical points which can effect the traceability process.
I am not understanding how I start it what should be the contents of my project.
That is why I am seeking help from the experts in this forum.

Hi Atique,

I am not understanding how I start it what should be the contents of my project.
That is why I am seeking help from the experts in this forum.


Just start with a description of a general traceability system.
What are the objectives/goals? How should it be set up? What are the requirements of a traceability system? Etc.
After that, conduct a hazard identification and a risk analyse. Identifying the points that are a hazard to maintain traceability, e.g. losing identification.

I am sure that your professor also like to see some recommendations or measures to control the hazards.

I hope this is of any help.
Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor

Dear Atique,

If Madam A. D-tor understands correctly yr requirement, her practical advice makes good sense IMO. In fact the scope of yr project seems same as the (ultra-generic) ISO 22005 standard which I suggest you first consult since it points the way to logically defining / setting up a traceability system. As usual, the actual operational details are left to the user.

This seems a very wide project (!!) or perhaps you are specifically limited to the (safety) risk management objective ? The latter traceability aspect is widely discussed on IT in the context of HACCP of course.

......hazard analysis in traceability process.

Interesting. Its truly not an easy assignment as admittedly, I have never heard of one being done before. Probably a need to first define the differences between a "risk" and "hazard" before you undertake your next move.

critical analysis in traceability.

Ah! this seems to be a workable assignment where you perform a critical assessment on the effectiveness and efficiency (weaknesses / strength / deficiency) of a traceability system.

Best of luck!

Dear Atique,

I suggest you make a preliminary draft of yr presentation (1st stages / particular aspects / whatever) and post it in this thread. There are a lot of specialists here but they may prefer to see a specific document before making comments. This way you maximise yr possibilities. :smile:

It is also not a good idea to leave an email address in a post since spam bots routinely harvest such data and may target you. I hv deleted yr email to prevent this happening.

Dear Atique,

With all due respect yr current list of similar topics is becoming confusingly large –

(1) Food Traceability - feb6th – 4posts

(2) Hazard analysis in traceability – march 15th – 8 posts

(3) Food authenticity and traceability – march 29th – 2posts,

(4) Food Authenticity – march 30th – 5 posts

(5) - Risk based approach in food traceability – may 4th – 1 post

I think topic No.5 has already received some relevant replies in topic No.2 (this one) so I hv transferred / copied yr most recent post from (5) (see below) and deleted topic No.5 above. Also slightly adjusted the No. (2) topic title. Hope this is OK for you –

Hi every one.
I have to prepare a project on risk based approach in food traceability. I posted a topic a month ago, but I have to change the title of my project now.
I have to prepare a comprehensive project on risk based approach in food traceability. In this project I have to describe that what are the critical control points in the traceability process, what kind of risks are associated in the traceability process. I have to submit the project out line. I will be in need of help in my project. Can any one of you please guide me that how to start my project, how should I prepare the project outline. I will really appreciate the help and guidance of you guys.
Regards,
Atique

Just a couple of suggestions that might be good to include:

identification of the product and its risk factors once it leaves the plant;
storage requirements for that product - especially during transport;
What sort of records are kept by the company, as hard copy records are kept by many companies, and possibly not kept well, leading to poor traceability.
