What is your opinion about the use of the Campden decision tree? I found the following article while giving the search "storage not CCP" : 

https://techni-k.co....x_decision_tree.   

 

At the moment we have "the outgrowth of microorganisms on processed products (pomegranate seeds, coconut chunks) during storage" as a CCP. It is like this since 2012 when the quality&food safety manual of my company was made by mine predecessor together with a consultancy company. My company is a service provider (repacking, relabelling, storage of fresh fruit and vegetables). The only thing that we do with the pomegranate seeds is income control, labelling, storage. During our last BRC/IFS Food audit, the auditor said that the CCP is well described and monitored, but it is more a CP than a CCP and maybe I can try to change the plan. We used the codex decision tree to determine the CCP, but if I use the information form the above article, then I can change the HACCP plan. Neither BRC or IFS say that we have to use the codex decision tree, only that we have to use a logical approach which might be facilitated by the use of  a decision tree. 

 

Unfortunatelly I've only seen this decision tree in this article and further I can't find something else about it.

The full Campden HACCP guide is available direct from their website: https://www.campdenb...php?pubsID=4649

Don't see any problem with using the Campden tree rather than the Codex one, particularly given how well recognised/respected they generally are on process matters. 
In fact I've never used the Codex tree in any of our HACCP plans!

Hi ilonadlb,

 

Actually this tree was developed several years ago and is posted elsewhere on this Forum.

 

The advantage is precisely what the linked article states in that it initially starts by allowing for Prerequisites. (Of course if you don't use Prerequisites for the relevant control then it won't make any difference).

 

It's even simpler to use no decision trees at all to determine significant hazards which is what i do.

 

@ pHruit - available yes, but sadly only for GBP 135.


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
