Advanced HACCP: Risk Assessment, Verification and Validation

July 10 @ 9:00 am - July 11 @ 12:00 pm

Advanced HACCP Training

Course Objectives:

This course is intended to be taken after the Introduction To HACCP course, and is accredited by the International HACCP Alliance.  It builds upon the standard HACCP approach, with particular focus on the principles of Validation and Verification.  The course includes discussion of approaches to risk assessment of hazards, and how to verify that your systems are functioning properly and are achieving their desired outcomes, and a segment discussing internal audits in the context of a food manufacturing operation.

The principles covered in this course will aid food companies in better complying with the FDA’s verification requirements in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), as well as similar USDA requirements.  Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) audit standards also require that programs within the Food Safety Management System be both validated and verified by competent individuals with an understanding of these concepts.

This 2 day course explores the following related to HACCP and Food Safety Management Systems verification and validation:

  • The differences between verification and validation, and common misconceptions

  • Methods for verifying the efficacy of Prerequisite Programs

  • Verification of Critical Control Points

  • Verification of the HACCP system in its entirety

  • Food Safety Modernization Act requirements for verification and validation

This course is accredited by the International HACCP Alliance and meets the requirements of  Advanced HACCP: Verification and Validation of HACCP Systems.
