    • Hi Didem,

      If you own a restaurant, Regulations R638, in conjunction with the Foodstuffs and Cosmetics Act should be sufficient regarding Food Safety legislation.

    • Good day Tessa,

      No HACCP is not compulsory by law for cheese making. HACCP is only compulsory by law for a few industries, for example, processed meat (to only mention one), BUT it all depends on your clients’ requirements. We recommend you contact your clients and ask them what their requirements are. Most retailers in South Africa do require that you have a fully functional Food Safety Management System, which includes HACCP, in place with proof of certification.

      Kind regards,

  1. If you would like to supply Processed Food, example frozen meals to a business for resale to the public and they are HACCP certified, do you have to acquire the HACCP certification also or just the R638 certification?

    • Hi Paul,

      It will depend on your customers. If they need you to be HACCP certified, then yes. Best is to find out what your customers require from you.

  2. Hi there
    I am a one-owner business, preparing, making, baking & cooking items such as sauces, rusks, pre-packed dry products such as seeds, and baking ingredients. I do it all myself. I have no other staff working or assisting me at this stage.
    My aim is to sell Homemade, Homebaked, and bottled items to shops such as Spar, Pick & pay and delicatessens, and private clients. I was told by the NMMM Health inspector that I need to do a Food Safety Training Course, to get my Certificate. She did not specify.
    I presume that I will only be needing level 1, to comply with the R638 -2018?

    • Hi Ronell,

      This course is a Basic Food Safety course and is sufficient to obtain a Certificate of Acceptability.
