You can write your food safety plan and sanitation plan in any way that works best for you, as long as they meet the requirements of the Food Premises Regulation. Please get approval from your local health authority if you are not sure what format to use for your food safety plan or sanitation plan, or to check if your current plan(s) meets the regulatory requirements.

The templates below are provided to help you meet the minimum regulatory requirements.  If you decide to use these templates, please refer to the Food Safety Plan Workbook and Sanitation Plan Workbook for easy-to-follow guidance on how to fill in them out.

Once completed, your food safety plan and sanitation plan must be submitted to your local health authority for approval.
