This session is focused on practical tools to help you design and implement HARPC. You will be able to develop a valid preventive control plan (PCP) from this session if you work with your associates to complete the step-by-step process to finalize the plan. We will also touch on the specific tools you need to document exactly what your people are doing to implement, maintain, validate, verify and continuously implement the plan through years to come.

Why should you Attend:

There is no time like the present to get your company in gear as you march towards FSMA compliance.  Prevention and reduction of food safety risks is the path towards success. For many companies, designing and implementing a great control system is old business, but for many others, there are many new ideas that can get confusing. Hazards, prevention, risk and control are critical to meeting FSMA requirements. HARPC training provides the background needed to prepare to meet these new demands.

You need the plan and implementation to satisfy your customer’s requirements under Subpart G of the supply chain controls. Without full implementation at your end, your customers will find it illegal to hire your company as a supplier.

This session by Dr. John Ryan will teach you how to simply do your planning based on hazards that might impact both your products and your processes.  You will learn to do a simple flow chart and you will learn how to diagram your process to identify hazards and build a risk-based preventive control system (HARPC).  The training will take about 75 minutes and within a couple of hours after that, you will have a HARPC design that will be relatively easy to implement and use.
