1.5-Day Workshop

May 1-2, 2019

Denver, Colorado




(aka HARPC Plans)

This newly developed workshop is considered an “Advanced PCQI” course for participants that have either completed the existing FSPCA PCQI workshop or who are knowledgeable in HACCP or other food safety systems. The class is designed as a second phase approach for those wanting assistance with developing and implementing the specific elements of the FSMA Food Safety or HARPC Plan to completion, or students that need to convert their existing HACCP Plans into a FSMA Food Safety Plan (aka HARPC). Additionally, this course reviews the historical background of Codex HACCP and evolution of USA FSMA HARPC and the logic behind the development of the new FSMA Food Safety Plans or HARPC.

The 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 developing the Hazard Analysis and Preventive Controls correctly by using real food processing examples so the participant can more easily relate and bring back newfound knowledge into their job function. 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.

  • 1.5-day Workshop presented by Nancy Scharlach, a Lead Instructor in International HACCP Alliance and FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human food and Foreign Supplier Verification Programs. 
  • Course Participant Manual
