USA legal mandate FSMA
The requirements set forth in the USA are for organizations that operate within the food supply chain and the need to implement,
periodically review the effectiveness of the HACCP - HARPC program. Failure to review, act and control can have legal effects. As a third party assessment organization in HACCP -

equally including both domestic and imported food products.
Further, The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Institute of Medicine issued a congressionally mandated report in April 2003, which stated that meat and poultry regulation in the development of
food-safety criteria should be science based and tied to the public health objectives.
