Enhance statue.

The requirements are intended to be common for all activities from crop and primary source producers, transport and storage operators, retail and foodservice outlets together with their suppliers, including manufactures of equipment, and packaging, amongst others. As the standard covers such a wide range of activities, regardless of size and complexity, it is of necessity, generic in nature Companies who wish to apply the standard will need to identify the risks associated with their particular process using the established HACCP principles defined by Codex Alimentarius.
