Taking the Hassle out of HACCP...

As of September 18th 2018 all brewers need to be in compliance with most of the the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).


Under the final rules the FDA is obligated to inspect every brewery in the USA over the next few years.

The FDA inspector will inspect and observe every level of your operations.

They may and will review your record keeping files and are are allowed to make copies and photographs for their records.

If your facility fails the FDA inspection you will not only get fined but a stricter re-inspection will be required at a cost of over $200 per hour payable by the inspected brewer.


The USA brewing industry is legally obliged to provide a safe for consumption product and to ensure safety throughout the supply and manufacturing chain.

Brewing beer generally creates a much safer product than non-alcoholic beverages of foods, naturally protected from certain mycotoxins and bacteria, however it can still be  contaminated by foreign bodies and chemicals at various stages within the manufacturing process.

Putting HACCP systems in place can and will control and reduce the risks significantly. 


HACCP’s preventive approach to food safety is recognized world wide and has a proven track record when it comes to food safety for over 60 years.


American HACCP can help implementing HACCP systems that are specifically designed for brewers to comply with the FSMA.

Title 21 of United States Code, Chapter 9, Subchapter 2, Section 321, paragraph f:

“The term ‘food’ means (1) articles used for food or drink for man or other animals, (2) chewing gum, and (3) articles used for components of any such article.”
