Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a systematic approach to controlling foodborne illness.   The Division of Hotels and Restaurants has incorporated this approach into its educational and regulatory efforts for public food service establishments.  HACCP has been approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration.
