The critical role of HACCP in food safety and the emerging requirements of the FSMA have led many professionals across the packaging supply chain to collaborate in an effort to “elevate food packaging safety awareness and provide resources for tools and training to the packaging supply chain.” In fact, this is the stated vision of FSAP, the Food Safety Alliance for Packaging, a technical committee of the Institute of Packaging Professionals. FSAP has brought together associates from food and CPG companies, service providers, trade associations and suppliers of packaging materials and equipment to produce a wealth of resources for the industry. Among these are several free, downloadable HACCP and related models & forms. These include:

Prerequisite Programs

FSAP’s Prerequisite Programs document, in Microsoft Word document (*.doc) format, spellsout purposes and expectations for programs in 17 areas relating to food safety management, quality systems, control of hazards, internal audit programs and much more.
