Hygiene Regulation 852/2004/EC

Obligation for all food businesses to apply HACCP

Under EU Regulation (EC) 852/2004 primary responsibility for food safety
rests with food business operators. They must put in place, implement
and maintain a permanent procedure or procedures based on the HACCP
principles. They must be able to identify any hazards that must be
prevented, eliminated or reduced to acceptable levels. On the basis of a
hazard analysis they must establish control measures, limits at the critical
control points (CCPs) and implement effective monitoring procedures.
DG Sanco’s guidance document says to Article 5 of this regulation
(Sanco/1955/2005/Rev. 3) that all potential biological, chemical or
physical hazards that might be reasonably expected to occur at each
process step must be identified, including those of raw materials and
ingredients. The NVWA has set up guidelines on how food companies could deal with hazards associated with raw materials. See Information sheet 64

Regulation (EC) No 767/2009 sets rules on the placing and use of feed.

The objective of this Regulation is to harmonise the conditions for the placing on the market and the use of feed, in order to ensure a high level of feed safety and thus a high level of protection of public health, as well as to provide adequate information for users and consumers and to strengthen the effective functioning of the internal market. 

To assist feed business operators in registering their feed materials as required, the EC developed the catalogue of feed materials (Regulation 68/2013). This regulation has been strongly amended by Regulation (EU) 2017/1017.
