BRC HARPC (2 day training course)
Monday 4th & Tuesday 5th April
Conference attendee cost to attend:$850
All other cost to attend:$950
The purpose of this course is to train technical and quality staff from sites who need to be able to establish and implement a food safety system that includes an analysis of hazards and risk-based preventive controls.
The course is aimed at food site technical managers, quality managers, and food safety management teams who need to develop and implement a food safety plan, which meets the requirements of the U.S. FDA Food Safety Modernization Act’s Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation.
Training focuses on alignment of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) legislation (21 CFR §117), with respect to the food safety plan. Methods are suggested for how sites can adapt a food safety (HACCP) plan to meet FSMA’s hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls (HARPC) requirements. This course is not a substitute for FDA Preventive Controls curriculum.
