I'm trying to draw up an allergen risk assessment and management system for a company, but seem to be getting bogged down with complexities. Can anyone suggest a template that could simplify things. I have been using 'Guidance on Allergen Management and Consumer Information' as a reference.

Approach this as you would for any contaminant on a HACCP plan. The standard contaminants on a HACCP are microbiological, chemical or physical contamination, just add allergen contamination onto the list.

Have you done a HACCP risk assessment before, if you have you may find it easy, if not we can give a lot of help. The main thrust to start off with is knowing your product constituents and the process flow and parameters.

What product / process are you looking at?


Kind Regards

:welcome:

I think it would help if you told us the products you are dealing with and the allergens you are handling.

Regards,

Tony
