HOW TO CONVERT HACCP PLANS TO
FSMA FOOD SAFETY PLANS (aka HARPC Plans)

Course Introduction and Objective
This proprietary HACCP to HARPC workshop was developed by Industry Leader Nancy Scharlach, the President of FSMA International, LLC. It is designed for participants wanting assistance with developing and implementing the specific required elements of the FSMA Food Safety or HARPC Plan to completion. In other words, helping PCQIs that need to convert their existing HACCP Plans into a FSMA Food Safety Plan (aka HARPC), or even development them from scratch.
The official 20 hour FSPCA PCQI course can feel like information overload and many participants are lost after taking the class. This new course, developed using onsite practical examples, focuses on properly identifying hazards, developing a comprehensive Hazard Analysis and robust Preventive Controls by using real food processing examples so the participant can better relate to the material and bring back newfound knowledge into their job function.
Additionally, this course reviews the historical background of Codex HACCP and the evolution of USA FSMA HARPC and the logic behind the development of the new FSMA Food Safety Plans or HARPC.
At the end of the course, the full Food Safety Plan outline and Table of Contents will be presented to ensure each participant walks out with a plan of action. Please review the course agenda and scope listed below for a complete description of what is included in this workshop.

OPEN DATES: TBD
COST: $895
