Would someone assists with some thoughts on the parallels of pet food and human food HACCP plans?
Just as one (US) example -
1.5 Is the Food Safety Plan [for animal food] the Same as a HACCP Plan?
Although a food safety plan and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan are
similar, they are not identical. A HACCP plan is a written document based upon the principles
of HACCP and which delineates the procedures to be followed. HACCP is a systematic
approach to the identification, evaluation, and control of food safety hazards. HACCP systems,
which are the result of the implementation of a HACCP plan, have been mandated by U.S.
Federal regulations issued by the FDA for processing seafood and juice and by the United States
Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA/FSIS) for processing
meat and poultry. No HACCP system has been mandated by FDA for any animal food. HACCP
principles have been voluntarily adopted however by some segments of the animal food industry,
such as some rendering facilities. Contains Nonbinding Recommendations
1.6 What if a Facility Already has a HACCP Plan?
If you have an existing HACCP plan, you should determine if your HACCP plan satisfies all the
requirements for the food safety plan in the PCAF regulation. You can use existing programs,
procedures, and records and supplement those with any additional information required. If you
are using or planning to use a HACCP plan at your animal food facility, you may find helpful a
complete discussion of the differences between a food safety plan and a HACCP plan in the draft
guidance document issued on August 24, 2016, titled “Draft Guidance for Industry: Hazard
Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food”, Chapter 1 (Ref. 2).
