HACCP- (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points) The basis of voluntary seafood inspection program overseen jointly by the National Marine Fisheries Service and the Food and Drug Administration. HACCP requires suppliers to write up and follow a program detailing all points in their manufacturing process where hazards exist.
