GS1 Australia’s electronic product recall notification management system has received certification from HACCP Australia.

The Recall service — designed to minimise the impact and cost of food and beverage products recalled and withdrawn from the supply chain — has been certified as ‘effective and suitable for businesses that operate a HACCP based Food Safety Programme’.

According to Richard Jones, GS1 Australia’s general manager – marketing and quality services, Recall is the first online recall portal to be approved and certified by HACCP, enabling subscribers of the service to comply with HACCP requirements for recall communications such as notifications, reporting and tracking of communications.

Martin Stone, technical director of HACCP Australia, said, “HACCP protocols are designed to ensure consumer safety by preventing as many food hazards as possible. A food safety program should be put in place to prevent any danger from those hazards. Food safety programs always include procedures for product recall.”

Stone said the Recall service maximises the effectiveness of a product recall, which can reduce the risk to consumer safety.
