What is TACCP?

PAS96: 2014 is a guide issued by the UK Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture Affairs (DEFRA) and the Food Standards Agency to protect and defend the food and beverage industry from deliberate attacks. This guide describes a system called TACCP.

TACCP; Collaboration with different disciplines due to the different focus, although they have common points with HACCP risk management methodology. No process can fully guarantee that food is not a crime tool / target, but TACCP was developed to minimize this risk. The objectives of this system are to reduce the likelihood of a deliberate attack, to reduce the consequences (impacts) of an attack, to maintain the reputation of the organization, to give confidence to customers, the press and the community that appropriate steps have been taken to protect food, and to show that necessary measures are taken in protected food. For these purposes, the system can identify specific threats to the manufacturer, calculate the probability of an attack, the attacker’s purpose, the weaknesses of the process, the capacity of the attack, determine the potential impacts of a successful attack, identify potential impacts, establish control points to deter the attacker, and generate early warning when the attack occurs. aims to provide information and intelligence systems.

TACCP; With a knowledgeable and reliable team and an authority is a risk management system that enables the transformation of changes into procedures through the assessment of threats, identification of weak points, control of materials, products, procurement, processing, environment, distribution networks and business systems.

TACCP cannot completely prevent claims of contaminated food, but it helps to decide whether the claim is true or not. Such a claim,

if it is conclusive or convincing, it can create a crisis situation. In order to prevent these situations, the organization follows up the operations step by step.

It should be informed. The TACCP process seeks answers to these four questions: Who might want to attack us? How can they do that? Where are we weak? How can we stop them? Any changes that could affect the TACCP system or potentially break security measures should be passed to the TACCP team leader immediately. It must be reported.
