Is HACCP mandatory?

Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is mandatory by law for manufacturers of meat and poultry, seafood, and juice products. It is otherwise voluntary, provided that the food plant implements a written preventive controls plan according to the Food Safety Modernization Act.

While it is not mandatory to implement HACCP for other types of food, its use is widely encouraged. Thus, researchers publish numerous guidance documents that explain the principles of HACCP and contain complete HACCP Plans, flow charts, and hazard analysis worksheets.
