HACCP

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points is a systematic preventive approach to food safety from biological, chemical, and physical hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe, and designs measurements to reduce these risks to a safe level. In this manner, HACCP attempts to avoid hazards rather than attempting to inspect finished products for the effects of those hazards. The HACCP system can be used at all stages of a food chain, from food production and preparation processes including packaging, distribution, etc.
HACCP is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.

AWPCS

The AWPCS is a certification scheme that ensures that Australian treatment providers and wood packaging manufacturers produce wood packaging material that meets the ISPM 15 standard for exports.

ISPM 15 is the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures Publication No. 15 – Guidelines for Regulating Wood Packaging in International Trade. It represents the first international commodity based standard and sets out criteria for regulating wood packaging material used in international trade.

Under the AWPCS treatment providers and wood packaging manufacturers that meet the ISPM 15 requirements will be authorised by the department to apply an internationally recognised mark to wood packaging material produced for use in the export trade. The ISPM 15 certification mark can only be used in Australia by participants in the AWPCS who are recognised by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.

Participation in the AWPCS is not mandatory, however participants in the AWPCS agree to be bound by its rules.

The AWPCS details the requirements and procedures for the certification of wood packaging material for use in export consignments and is intended for use by Australian treatment providers, wood packaging manufacturers and accredited certification bodies.

Kosher certification is a process by which a company ensures that their food is kosher, or in other words, fit for consumption by observant Jews. Kosher laws are more complicated than they may look, even a potato chips can be non-kosher if they are fried in vegetable oil that was pasteurized and deodorized with equipment that has been used for tallow production.
