HACCP Plan Self-Assessment Checklist

Use the HACCP Plan Self-Assessment Checklist to evaluate your HACCP plan, conducting a thorough gap analysis to enhance your food safety compliance.​

HACCP Plan Self-Assessment Checklist



Critical Control Points

1. For each hazard with a high likelihood of exposure and potential consequences, if not controlled, has the appropriate step been made into a critical control point (CCP)?


Photo Comment

2. Were Critical Control Points identified using a HACCP flow chart/decision tree?


Photo Comment

3. Are Critical Control Points listed on the HACCP Plan indeed critical (Decision Tree)?


Photo Comment

4. Are Critical Control Points listed on the HACCP Plan NOT SSOPs or GMPs?


Photo Comment
Control Limits

1. Have measurable critical limits been established for each control point?


Photo Comment

2. Have the sources that led to critical limit decisions been filed and documented?


Photo Comment
Monitoring

1. Does a monitoring procedure exist for each CCP on the plan?


Photo Comment

2. Does the monitoring plan identify the responsible parties, and have these employees been properly trained to monitor and respond to deviations?


Photo Comment

3. Does the monitoring plan identify the type (continuous and non-continuous), regularity (periodic or random), and frequency of monitoring?


Photo Comment

4. Does the monitoring plan specify the methods and tools to be used?


Photo Comment

5. Are the monitoring tools and technology regularly checked for accuracy and are the results recorded?


Photo Comment

6. Do employees record monitoring results on a log that is stored for the appropriate amount of time after testing?


Photo Comment
Corrective Actions

1. Are corrective action(s) identified and adequately described for each CCP on our Plan?


Photo Comment

2. Are product disposal procedures identified in the corrective action portion of our plan?


Photo Comment

3. Is a procedure for demonstrating the CCP under control outlined in the corrective action portion of the plan?


Photo Comment

4. Are corrective actions, including deviations and CCP verifications, documented by employees?


Photo Comment

5. Are employees trained in corrective action procedures outlined in the plan?


Photo Comment
Recordkeeping & Plan Verification

1. Is HACCP record keeping thorough and accurate?


Photo Comment

2. Does the plan outline the methods for verifying if the plan is working (i.e., product testing, instrument calibration, records review, etc.)?


Photo Comment

3. Was the procedure for microbial and/or chemical testing to verify the CCPs developed by a qualified person(s) using product knowledge, epidemiological data, and information in technical literature?


Photo Comment

4. Is the procedure for microbial and/or chemical testing to verify the CCPs documented, and are results recorded?


Photo Comment
Product & Process Descriptions

1. Is the HACCP Plan inclusive of all relevant product descriptions, including vendor/producer, ingredients/raw materials, packaging, temperature(s), and preparation description?


Photo Comment

2. Does our HACCP Plan include an easy-to-understand process flow chart?


Photo Comment

3. Has the process flow chart been verified for accuracy and completeness against actual operating procedures?


Photo Comment
Hazard Assessment & Analysis

1. Is the HACCP Plan based on a hazard analysis performed after prerequisite SSOPs were implemented?


Photo Comment

2. Was the hazard analysis performed after the most recent ingredient, process, equipment, and/or facility changes?


Photo Comment

3. Were all process steps evaluated for hazards?


Photo Comment

4. For each hazard, was the significance/likelihood of occurrence determined by an experienced person(s) using product knowledge, epidemiological data, and information in technical literature?


Photo Comment

5. For each hazard, have preventative measures been identified and implemented (non-critical and critical control points)?
