Hi Guys,

 

Just wanted something cleared.

 

PRP's outline WHAT it is we do,

 

and

 

SOP's are instructions on HOW we do it, correct?

 

So in writing my HACCP PRP's can I just give basic statements on what it is we are doing and reference the SOP that subject belongs to?

I would say a Program is general information regarding a subject while a Procedure is a step-by-step set of instruction pertaining to a specific subject.

I would say in a HACCP Prerequisite context they are semantically interchangeable but Program is usually in the definition. "Program" is also used in the Collective sense.

 

It depends, eg -

SOP is surely a far more general term than PRP but may also be used identically  IMO

 

And then we have Work Instruction to assist a Procedure.

SOP - Standard Operating Procedure: A step by step instruction, like reading directions, of how the task is to be handled, completed or accomplished.
