The food and drink supply chain is increasingly threatened by physical attack or fraud from criminals or terrorists. A core element in the defence of food and drink against attack is a systematic evaluation of vulnerable elements of the supply chain, carried out by an experienced and trusted team – Threat Assessment and Critical Control Point (TACCP). The evaluation reflects established procedures for risk management and it is likely that organisations will increasingly incorporate it into a framework for crisis and/or business continuity management.
TACCP: a practical guide (Campden BRI Guideline 72) (see www.campdenbri.co.uk/publications/pubDetails.php?pubsID=4640) reflects the principles and practices of TACCP, and other methods employed in the assurance of food and drink safety and security. A key part of the guidance is the assessment of threat – a large number of questions and considerations are detailed for the product, the premises and the business. These include assuring personnel security, controlling access to premises, services, the processes and materials, and the secure storage of transport vehicles. Key points are illustrated with examples and case studies.
