Who needs this qualification?
The Level 3 Award in HACCP for Food Manufacturing will benefit managers and supervisory staff responsible for the development of a food safety management system based on the Codex principles of HACCP in a food manufacturing setting.

Legislation requires that food handlers are trained commensurate with their role and activities within the food business, with specific additional HACCP training for HACCP team members. Regulation EC No. 852/2004 on the hygiene of foodstuffs (Article 5) states that food business operators must implement a food safety management system based on the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points.
Why is this qualification important?
Food business operators have a duty to put in place, implement and maintain a permanent procedure or procedures based on the Codex principles of HACCP. Those involved in either the implementation, maintenance or review of HACCP systems must have an in-depth understanding of the manufacturing process covered by it, while possessing background knowledge of food safety that is sufficient to devise or identify effective food safety control systems. It is therefore recommended that candidates have suitable food safety and manufacturing process knowledge.
