You can develop a food safety plan, implement the plan and verify the plan, but if your data does not prove that you are actually preventing food safety problems, the plan is not considered valid and your overall food safety effort will fail audits.According to the FDA all food facilities "must monitor their controls, conduct verification activities, provide hard data to validate that the controls are effective, take appropriate corrective actions, and maintain records documenting these actions".

This training session will present a practical approach to provide you and your team members with needed understanding and tools and a basic strategy for designing, implementing and validating preventive process controls.You will develop a basic plan during this training and have it checked by the instructor.Regardless of your ability to understand or validate processes, process validation is now a legal requirement and you cannot wait for the FDA to develop their ability to assist your companyAreas Covered in the Session:· Preventive Control System Planning Requirements and Goals· Review of the FDA's FSMA Overall Rules· Review of final rules for the preventive control of human and animal foods· Validation· Environmental Monitoring (Sampling/Test/Labs/Data)· Supply Chain Controls (Including imports)· cGMP· Hazards and Adulteration· Prevention versus Corrective Action· Cross Contamination through Supply Chains· Food Safety and Quality Planning (HARPC)· Packaging· Teams and Teamwork· Continuous Improvement· Measurement, Repeatability, Reliability, Calibration· Statistical Process Control (SPC)· Data, logs, forms and electronic record keeping· Recall and Traceability· Return on investment (ROI) and marketing advantages· Integrated Food Safety Systems (Government vs Business needs)· Transportation Processes· CustomersWho will benefit:· Mandatory for upper level management needing to understand impact of laws relating to food safety program validation· Legal team members focused on food safety· Food quality and safety personnel· Food safety leads and implementation team members· Maintenance operations personnel· Food facility personnel· Food importers whose food will be consumed in the U.S.· Food security personnel· Recall specialists· Company sales and marketing personnel whose customers demand sanitary and temperature controlled distribution and transportation processesAgenda:Lecture 1:· Preventive Control System Planning Requirements and Goals Preventive Control System Planning Requirements and Goals· Review of the FDA's FSMA Overall Rules· Review of final rules for the preventive control of human and animal foods· ValidationLecture 2:· Environmental Monitoring (Sampling/Test/Labs/Data)· Supply Chain Controls (including Imported Foods)· c/GMPLecture 3:· Hazards and Adulteration· Prevention versus Corrective Action· Cross Contamination through Supply ChainsLecture 4: System Planning ActivitiesDay 2 ScheduleLecture 1:· HARPC Food Safety and Quality Planning· PackagingLecture 2:· Teams, Teamwork and Continuous Improvement· Measurement, repeatability, Reliability, Calibration· Statistical Process ControlLecture 3:· Data, logs, forms and electronic record keeping· Recall and Traceability· ROI· Integrated Food Safety Systems (Government versus Business)Lecture 4:· Transportation Processes· Customers· System Planning· Speaker:John Ryan,President, TransCert, QualityInFoodSafety, RyanSystems, Dr.
