The seven HACCP principles are included in the international standard ISO 22000 FSMS 2005. This standard is a complete food safety and quality management system incorporating the elements of prerequisite programmes(GMP & SSOP), HACCP and the quality management system, which together form an organization’s Total Quality Management system.
Other Standards, such as Safe Quality Food Institute’s SQF Code, also relies upon the HACCP methodology as the basis for developing and maintaining Food Safety (Level 2) and Food Quality (Level 3) Plans and programs in concert with the fundamental prerequisites of Good Manufacturing Practices.
