Official BRCGS Hazard Analysis & Risk-based Preventive Controls HARPC course (2 Days)



Attention: This course is delivered over 2 full days. If you're interested in the same course but delivered over 4 half-days (3pm to 6:30pm London time, consecutive half-days excluding weekend), please click here. Thank you.

This official BRCGS hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls (HARPC) course will cover the similarities and differences between requirements of the BRCGS Standard for Food Safety and the Food Safety Modernization Act's (FSMA) Preventive Controls rule. The HARPC plan for any food manufacturing site is the core of their entire food safety program. HARPC encompasses far more in the way of food safety assessment and control than a traditional hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) plan.

BRCGS Standards' HARPC course is not a substitute for the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Preventive Controls course.

This course is part of the BRCGS Professional recognition programme.

At the end of the course, you will: 

  • Understand how the BRCGS Standard for Food Safety aligns with FSMA’s Preventive Controls rule

  • Be able to explain the BRCGS Standards and HARPC requirements for development and management of a food safety plan

  • Have learned how to adapt a BRCGS Standards food safety management system (FSMS) to meet Preventive Controls regulation

  • Be able to review common non-conformities related to HACCP and HARPC found in BRCGS Standards audits

  • Be able to review risk analysis principles


Note: This course is proposed as either 2x full days, or 4x half-days. Please carefully review the date & time options before confirming your booking.
