Benefits of attending

HACCP systems and many prerequisite programmes must be validated prior to implementation to obtain evidence that safe food can be provided. After implementation, verification activities are needed to provide evidence that HACCP and the prerequisites are actually effective and being complied with.

During the course, delegates will learn about the vital roles of validation and verification within HACCP systems, how they apply to HACCP systems and obtain knowledge to design effective validation plans. The course has a mix of tutor presentations and discussion sessions, some case studies/exercises are included to promote participant involvement and understanding.

Attending the course will benefit food safety managers, technical and quality managers, process/product development managers, engineers, HACCP team leaders and members and auditors of food safety systems to design effective validation and verification activities.
