This Understanding and Implementing Threat Assessment & Critical Control Points (TACCP) and Vulnerability Assessment & Critical Control Points (VACCP) one day course is based on the requirements of PAS 96:2017 ‘Guide to protecting and defending food and drink from deliberate attack’.

The purpose of PAS 96:2017 is to guide food business managers through approaches and procedures intended to improve the resilience of supply chains to fraud or other forms of attack. These include economically motivated adulteration, malicious contamination, extortion and counterfeiting. It aims to assure the authenticity and safety of food by minimizing the chance of an attack and mitigating the consequences of a successful attack.

This course covers TACCP as a framework which can be applied to assess both threats from ideologically motivated actors (TACCP) or food fraud (vulnerability of raw materials) from economically motivated attacks (VACCP)
