Certified HACCP Auditor (CHA)
The Certified HACCP Auditor is a professional who understands the standards and principles of auditing a HACCP-based (or process-safety) system. A HACCP Auditor uses various tools and techniques to examine, question, evaluate and report on that system’s adequacy and deficiencies. The HACCP Auditor analyzes all elements of the system and reports on how well it adheres to the criteria for management and control of process safety

Work Experience

You must have five years of on-the-job experience in one or more of the areas of the Certified HACCP Auditor Body of Knowledge. At least one year must be in a decision making role.

If you have completed a degree from a college, university or technical school with accreditation accepted by ASQ, part of the five-year experience requirement will be waived, as follows (only one of these waivers may be claimed):

Associate degree—one year waived
Bachelor’s degree—three years waived
Master’s or doctorate—four years waived
Degrees or diplomas from educational institutions outside the United States must be equivalent to degrees from U.S. educational institutions.


Each certification candidate is required to pass a written examination that consists of multiple-choice questions that measure comprehension of the Body of Knowledge. The HACCP Auditor examination is a one-part, 135-question, four-hour exam and is offered in the English language only.

Examinations are conducted twice a year, in March and October, by local ASQ sections and international organizations. All examinations are open-book. Each participant must bring his or her own reference materials. Use of reference materials and calculators is explained in the seating letter provided to applicants.
