HACCP HARPC MS, Preventive Controls, ISO 22000 Training

We answer questions and provide information to assist you with HACCP implementation and the fundamentals to maintain effective food safety management, for consultants and trainers, based Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This includes Hazardous Analysis Risk-based Controls (Preventive Controls, HARPC), whether a given organizations is required to acquire certification. Certification helps in organizing and implementing effective practices and methods in adherence to laws and regulations - certification is no substitute to laws and regulations.

HACCP (HARPC) MS and ISO 9001 (applying Guidelines or ISO 22000 as additional guidelines, whether set in Annex SL) are effective to managing food safety protocols, compatible with ISO 22000. It is important to indicate that FSMS ISO 22000 provides for certification - registration with international recognition. To achieve certification - registration status there are HACCP HARPC MS, ISO 9001 (applying ISO 15161 Guidelines, now already retired; as it didnt produce the necessary commerce in certifications), FSMS ISO 22000 [and possible others that need be based laws and regultaions]. For training to be effective it needs providing a pragmatic understanding of the seven principles of HACCP and a process approach encompassing a management system combining effective current Preventive Controls. These seven principles need be explored, studied and worked upon for the development of HACCP Plans and implementation, these programs may be 3 to 5-day training / workshop program (some may include fusing with ISO 9001, or ISO/IEC 17025 and/or ISO 22000, Belgium's GFSI).

Typical Program Objectives:

With the advent of the many food safety schemes for commercial purpose, an effective training and formation venue allows the participants to prepare a HACCP Plan for company products / processing. Discussion and acquiring knowledge during training and workshops may include:

  • Conduct a hazard analysis and prepare a process flow detailing significant hazards and preventive measures taken;
  • Identify the Critical Control Points (CCP) in the process;
  • Establish the critical limits associated with the CCP's;
  • Implement CCP monitoring procedures;
  • Implement corrective actions to be taken when deviations from the critical limits occur;
  • Advance the management system through procedures for verification that Preventive Controls based-risk  system works effectively and
  • Establish a recording scheme that assist in reduction of risk and system improvement.


Advising an effective course approach:

It is beneficial that through combining lectures, discussions and role playing it provides a "learning experience", when taking training programs.  Teamwork should  be emphasized both in the discussion-forum, workshops and throughout the workshop program. Ideally, these Work-Teams should continue their HACCP Plan in their own respective organizations. It is for this reason that the HACCP Program at times it is best be provided internally thus workshops are on actual process and product activities. Some training providers may require AFDO / FDA accredited instructor. For organizations that need to implement Food Safety Management System in accordance with International Standards, FSMS current ISO 22000 is an effective alternative when addresses laws and regulations with consumer-centric purpose, yet the market is flooded with food safety schemes one proclaiming better than the other. 

Some certifications bodies provide training including DNV, Lloyd's, BRS and other that we recommend providing training non-certification bodies like Stat-A-Matrix (USA), Next Step Business Education Ltd (Canada), Bulltek Latin America SC, Food Safety International Network (FSIN), and CALISO (distance learning - USA) and The HACCP Consulting Group in Virginia provide training programs to the needs of your organization in complying with regulatory requirements and those of governments for product exports, and may combine ISO/IEC 17025 as part of their programs. Within the network of professionals experience includes assisting governments of Egypt, Malaysia, Argentina, Brunei Darussalam and industry, which includes recognition for approved FSMS ISO 22000 Lead Assessor programs with Preventive Controls.
