WHAT IS GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICE (GMP)?
GMP is emerging as a major element of the food industry's complete food safety system. Consumers now place a high value on food safety and quality assurance.
The GMP standard's legal basis is well-found in Codex Alimentarius Commission standards such as CAC RCP 1, general principles of food hygiene. The Codex Alimentarius is a collection of globally accepted standards, codes of practices, guidelines, and other recommendations concerning foods, food production, and food safety. This standard maintains the food chain through primary production to the ultimate consumer, establishing the essential sanitary conditions for creating safe and acceptable for consumption food. The text serves as a foundation for additional, more detailed rules suited to various industries.
ISO 22002-1 on good manufacturing practices for materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. ISO 22002 consists of the parts, under the general title Prerequisite programs on food safety, Part 1: Food manufacturing which this Technical Specification is leaning on BS PAS 220:2008. This Technical Specification specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, and maintaining prerequisite programs (PRP's) to assist in monitoring food safety hazards.
