Traceability in the food and feed chain: general principles and basic system requirements 2nd edn 2015

Traceability is a widely used term and is one of those broad concepts, like quality, for which there are many definitions and applications and ideas about what is required or important.

Although regulations, international standards and commercial standards require traceability systems, none is prescriptive in the way it is achieved. Legal requirements focus on external traceability of suppliers and customers (the one step back and one step forward approach), whereas industry good practice also includes industry process traceability.
