VACCP is defined as Vulnerability Assessment Critical Control Point. This program is assessing risk of intentional adulteration for economic gain or Food Fraud. All GFSI Schemes have requirements for food fraud prevention. They two main requirements are conducting a vulnerability assessment and if significant vulnerabilities are identified, develop mitigation strategies or control measures to reduce or eliminate the risk. Most standards do not include specific requirements for what factors need to be considered in a vulnerability assessment, how to conduct it, or how to conduct and demonstrate horizon scanning is completed.
