HARPC – Practical Design & Implementation

(Webinar length:  1 hr  23 min) 


FSMA implementation, along with Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls (HARPC), has the potential of taking food safety to the next level. 
Currently there is a great deal of confusion around what is or is not a CCP, oPRP, CP, PRP etc.  There is even some miss-use of the CCP Decision Tree to avoid calling some steps a CCP with the only motive to reduce the burden of paperwork.
HARPC pushes past the definitions and politics encouraging a thorough, science-based program to be developed with clear and detailed hazard analyses and carefully described controls over each risk. 
For many sites, compliance to one of the GFSI-compliant standards is also necessary.  The course will describe how to fulfill the requirements of both HARPC as well as, for example, BRC sections 5.2.1 (ingredient risk assessment) and 5.2.3 (process risk assessment), and to combine this into one overall food safety plan.  Integrate your risk management programs.

Learning objectives:

  • Clarify the requirements for a HARPC plan.
  • Demonstrate the importance of detail within the Hazard Analysis
  • Show the integration of hazard analysis between HARPC and GFSI- compliant standards
  • Review an example format of a HARPC plan

Intended Audience:

  • Plant Management Team
  • Director / VP of Quality
  • QA / QC Managers
  • HACCP Coordinators
