Product Safety Management - Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (HARPC)

This course will cover the similarities and differences between requirements of the BRCGS Standard for Food Safety and the Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) Preventive Controls rule. BRCGS’ HARPC course is not a substitute for the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Preventive Controls course. HARPC encompasses far more in the way of food safety assessment and control than a traditional hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) plan.

Who should attend?

Operational, Quality and Technical staff responsible for developing and the dayto-day management of the HARPC plan and BRCGS Professionals.

  • Describe how the BRCGS Standard for Food Safety aligns with FSMA's Preventive Controls rule
  • Explain the BRCGS Standards and HARPC requirements for development and management of a food safety plan
