30+ years ago food safety became a world-wide issue for a myriad of reasons, particularly the growing export trade in food. That led to the adoption of HACCP (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points) based on guidelines published by Codex Alimentarius. HACCP is a risk assessment of potential food safety issues, determining critical control points (CCPs) based on a relatively simplistic decision tree, and dealing with them.
This became problematic for companies wishing to achieve certification to meet customer or export requirements because there was no actual Standard. The result was auditors and certification bodies (CBs) auditing based, largely, on their opinion rather than documented requirements. That’s why TQCSI developed the TQCSI HACCP Code, which is one of only a handful of codes in the world to have been registered by an accreditation body (JAS-ANZ in the case of the TQCSI HACCP Code). Our Code is transparent to our clients and auditors alike, documenting the actual requirements for certification.
TQCSI’s newest Regional Office, TQCSI (Turkey), has moved into their new office in Istanbul. The office is in the centre of Turkey’s biggest Industrıal Zone (İkitelli Organize Industrıal Zone), just 10 minutes from Ataturk Airport. Ismail Akin, General Manager of TQCSI (Turkey), advises that the industrial zone has plenty of potential clients with more than 27,000 companies across 7,000,000 m2.
