Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (HARPC)

Gain an understanding of the similarities and differences between requirements of the BRCGS Standard for Food Safety and the Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) Preventive Controls rule. To complete the course successfully, delegates will need to write an exam with 25 questions and gain a pass mark of 60%.

The duration of this course is 16 hours. This 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.  

BRCGS’ HARPC course is not a substitute for the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Preventive Controls course. HARPC encompasses far more in the way of food safety assessment and control than a traditional hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) plan.

  • Review common non-conformities related to HACCP and HARPC found in BRCGS audits
