Approved criteria for dairy manufacturing RMP or FCP

If you operate under a risk management programme (RMP) or Food Control Plan (FCP), or you verify or audit them, you can use approved criteria as a reference for technical information.

Using approved criteria

Approved criteria have been developed to:

  • help manufacturers with the technical content of their dairy RMP, FSP or FCP
  • serve as a reference for auditors and verifiers of RMPs and FSPs or FCPs
  • help anyone assessing or recognising people or agencies to verify or audit dairy products
  • help anyone approving chemicals under the Animal Products Act (APA) 1999.

Alternatively, manufacturers may also adopt a code of practice (COP) to show that risks are being appropriately managed in their process.
