No. Q-014 -- HACCP versus ISO 9001

Q :

I am working in a company providing cold room services to those chilled and
frozen products corporations.

Our company is considering introducing quality control system of either HACCP or
ISO 9001.

Could you please advise which system is better suited to our type of business

A :

HACCP normally applies to food processing companies. Since your company is
providing cold room services, not food processing, you would not have a food flow
in your operation. Therefore HACCP won't apply.

We recommend that you go for ISO 9001.
