Food Safety, Codes of Practice, Generic RMP Models
Purpose of this Document
The Animal Products Act 1999 requires primary processors, including those involved in the slaughter and dressing of farmed mammals, to operate under a risk management
programme (RMP). These generic RMP models have been produced by the New Zealand
Food Safety Authority, in consultation with an industry working group, to assist processors in the development of their RMP. It shows how the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) can be applied and how RMP components could be written for a slaughter and dressing, and cutting and boning operation. It is emphasised that these models are not intended to represent the outcome of a complete RMP. Individual premises
must customise their RMP to their specific products, processes and premises.
