The HACCP Certification
The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Certification outlines safety regulations for the control of biological, physical, and chemical hazards. Established in 1997, these standards govern the microbiological safety of food and medical industry environments – including uniforms worn by factory workers and medical personnel.
The certification provides seven principles that companies must adhere to, including verification procedures, hazard analyses, and more. Statements of antimicrobial efficacy must be supported by EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registration; failure to do so can result in legal fines for the misrepresentation of unregistered or unproven antimicrobial activity.
At Roscoe, we use exclusively EPA-registered products from WSI and Gurtler and follow strict procedures for HACCP compliance.
What This Means for You
Roscoe provides the highest quality anti-bacterial laundering for client safety and compliance. To ensure that garments are properly sanitized, we expose uniforms to temperatures and other conditions known to eliminate bacteria and viruses:
- High Temperatures of 165° kill certain pathogenic bacteria and viruses including tuberculosis and COVID-19
- Bleaching, a long-recognized germicide, is used in a mild concentration of chlorine to eliminate possible strains of E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in 30 seconds
- Sour Conditions eliminate remaining bacteria through exposure to acidic conditions
At Roscoe, we take pride in our commitment to sustainability, the highest possible customer satisfaction and continuous improvement in our processes and services. Those are among the goals that drive us to seek out independent third-party assessments of our processes and services. Learn more: The Roscoe Difference
