Answer:

Documentation hierarchy is the same for any kind of management systems including HACCP. Good tip on how to determine the document level on the pyramid is t see who writes it and who uses it. Documentation created and used by the top management and records used by workers are at the bottom.

Policy is on the top of the pyramid because it defines strategy, mission and vision and general direction o the organization and it is written by the top management.

The second level is the manual, it defines the system and represents a foundation for it. It sometimes includes procedure but usually reference to them.It is usually written by the management representative.

The third level are procedures, work instructions and SOPs. They define how activities and processes are carried out and by whom. They are usually written by mid management.

Ath the bottom of the pyramid are records and reports that are used to demonstrate that the process was carried out as planned , they are used by workers.
