A Sanitation Standard Operating Procedure Model
Replaces: 1996 Version of the Guidance
FSIS developed the Sanitation SOP model for establishments to use as a reference when developing Sanitation SOPs. The model was designed to assist establishments in applying the sanitation requirements to their operations and to meet the regulatory requirements of Part 416—Sanitation. The sanitation model is not intended to be used “as is” for industry Sanitation SOPs.
