GMPs and HARPC Under New FSMA

(Webinar length:  1hr 14min)


This webinar will emphasize the importance of the new preventative control regulation, the newly proposed Part 117 created by FDA under FSMA, how it will affect food companies that manufacture, process, pack, and hold human food and what you should know now so you can be prepared when it becomes effective next year. Food categories that are vulnerable to contamination with environmental pathogens as well as food categories that are vulnerable to contamination by cross-contact with allergens are particularly outlined. (These hazards currently do not require the same level of control to ensure their elimination or reduction to acceptable levels).

An example will be presented of a class 1 recall situation caused by serious hazards found reasonably likely to occur in a food processing facility presenting a reasonable probability of serious adverse health consequences or death to human consumers, what action this new Part 117 would require the facility to do to prevent the food from being consumed in the market-place and to develop and implement preventative controls to eliminate the hazards or reduce them to acceptable levels.

Learning Objectives:

  • Obtain a basic understanding of the new FDA requirements for food facilities regulated by FDA under the new proposed preventative control regulation for human food under FSMA – Part 117
  • Obtain a basic understanding of how to apply the requirements of the new Part 117 when serious hazards need preventative controls
