The primary purpose of this discussion paper on the integration of food safety management systems based on the Hazard and Critical Control Point Analysis (HACCP) with organic certification was to inform those within and outside the organic industry of recent developments in this area. It as also intended to highlight the need for the organic industry to address food safety management as part of the organic certification process.

During the past two years, legislation and international demand in the marketplace for food safety management (complete with verification of the use of these systems) has led to a situation where it has become more a matter of ‘how’ than ‘if’.
