HACCP

 
 

The implementation of the HACCP system requires effective organization, professional management and accurate documentation. A certificate of HACCP compliance yields business value for enterprises as it assures the safety of products, improves company’s credibility and as a result increases the competitive advantage in the market.

Within the NOR-STA project, the Gdansk University of Technology developed a state-of-the-art software platform for the services supporting companies in the implementation of the HACCP system.

NOR-STA services provide a comprehensive tool for management of documents, comprising:

  • HACCP Plan with all the points to be completed and justified,
  • lists of required documents with a direct option to attach them,
  • recommendations how to go through every stage of the HACCP implementing step by step.

Consequently, the company gains control over its situation, which enables it to implement and monitor HACCP system faster and more effectively.
