NY03046 - Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point

The Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme, Australia (NIASA) has provided a blueprint for professional management of production nurseries and growing media suppliers since 1994. The project was commissioned by Nursery and Garden Industry, Australia to conduct a generic Hazard Analyst and Critical Control Point (HACCP) based risk assessment of production nurseries and growing media supply businesses in order to review the activities described in NIASA. The project assessed plant health, quarantine and, where relevant, food safety risks. The HACCP based risk assessment aims to augment and validate the NIASA best management practice guidelines.
