HACCP was first developed for NASA in the 1960s to ensure food safety during the first space flights.

Today, it is recognised internationally as the best tool for maintaining food safety and has been incorporated into laws across the world.  So, whether you are working in a restaurant, delicatessen counter, or small food outlet, you are, so far is as reasonably practicable, responsible for your health, the health of your co-workers, employees, and the general public.

Therefore, this CPD-accredited Level 3 HACCP course helps mandatory training requirements for those managing food safety.

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme awards are affected by the result of environmental health officer inspections, specifically the scoring of food handling activities observed during the inspection and by auditing the HACCP paperwork and records.  But, failure to comply with food hygiene legislation (particularly in reference to cross contamination) will result in a poorer score.

This HACCP Level 3 Food Safety course is accredited by the CPD Group, so you can be assured it provides the right knowledge necessary to implement and manage an effective HACCP-compliant system.

Since January 2006, it has been a legal requirement for a food business to evidence that their operators have been appropriately trained.  In addition to emailing your certificate on successful completion of the course, we store a copy for 12 months should you require a replacement.

The benefits of a HACCP system are neatly summarised with the acronym:


  • Saves money in the long run
  • Avoids poisoning customers
  • Food quality increases

  • Food safety increases
  • Organises processes to produce safe food
  • Organises employees, promoting efficiency and teamwork
  • Due diligence defence in court

HACCP Regulations

Under EC Regulation 852/2004 on the ‘hygiene of foodstuffs’ a business owner shall comply with specific food safety rules & carry out related activities in a hygienic way.

There must be an organised and effective Food Safety Management System (FSMS) in place which is suitable for the business to ensure the food produced or sold is safe.
