John G. Surak and I wrote an article on the process of moving from paper to electronic HACCP records that will be published in Food Safety Magazine. It is a composite of presentations we have made this year as we have been involved with the development and implementation of the NWA eHACCP system.
The majority of existing HACCP programs were implemented a decade ago. These programs were generally designed as paper-based data collection and record management systems.
In the intervening years the limitations of paper based systems have become painfully clear. These include labor intensive operations, transcription errors, difficult and time consuming record retrieval and reporting, and cost and space requirements for record storage
We have been researching the requirements to create a viable electronic HACCP (eHACCP) system that successfully manages the operational aspects of HACCP from collecting data to validating and reporting results.
One of the presentations John made is “Moving from Paper Records to Electronic Records”. The slides can be seen at: j-g-surak-electronic-haccp .
