This course is designed to meet the required criteria of the International HACCP Alliance. Advanced HACCP: Verification and Validation of HACCP Systems concentrates on the various verification activities addressed in the sixth principle of HACCP.
Prerequisite: Completion of Basic HACCP Course or equivalent experience with the system.
Purpose: Define the Principles of Validation and Verification including risk assessment of hazards. GFSI audit standards require that programs within the Food Safety Management System should both be validated and verified by competent individuals with an understanding of these concepts. This course will explain in depth verification, the act of reviewing programs and systems to determine if what has been planned and documented to maintain safe food, is in fact, operating as expected. Validation, determining if the methods identified to produce safe food are sound and effective, is also explained.
FDA, USDA, and Global Food Safety Standards require verification and validation of your HACCP System. This 1.5 day course explores the following related to HACCP and Food Safety Management Systems verification and validation:
- Differences between verification and validation activities
- Methods for verifying the efficacy of Prerequisite Programs
- Components of Critical Control Point verification
- HACCP System verification procedures
- Instruction in HACCP Plan Validation
- U.S. Regulatory requirements for verification and validation
