ComplianceOnline

Course "The Development and Implementation of a Robust Food Safety, Defense and Quality Assurance System" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

If your company has been spared of a disaster until now, this is exactly the time to participate in this workshop. Even if your company has gone through a bad experience with food safety, quality or regulatory compliance issue, it is a good time to participate in this workshop. For the sake of future safeguards, food companies must build strong food safety, defense, security and quality assurance programs. The protection and satisfaction of consumers everywhere is essential to business survival and integrity. Debilitating disasters must be deliberately avoided through the implementation of things that you will learn during this workshop.

In this two-day workshop, you will learn strategies for matching the reality to the theory of product safety, security, defense and quality assurance together. You will learn about initiating and maintaining the collaborative engagement of all parties involved in the success of your food business. Through a review of the six-step implementation of safety, security and quality assurance (SSQA), you will learn about: resource utilization efficiency; effective implementation of relevant programs; the entire chain engagement process; team mobilization strategy; the tracking of exceptional success; failure analysis & control tracking; continuous analysis of realized effectiveness & efficiencies; as well as a HACCP system that addresses difficult-to-manage situations (DMS-HACCP) and the DIVE process. You will also learn about some tools for ensuring and measuring success.

Topic Background:

With the emerging (new) food regulations and versions of third party audit requirements, food operators will increasingly be forced to focus on what really matters in food safety and quality management. Food businesses of all sizes must return to the basics of assuring consumer safety and product quality. Rather than merely certifying their product safety and quality management systems and rest, food companies must look for ways to fortify their operations against product failure incidents. As regulatory enforcement intensifies and as consumer awareness and demands grow, only effectively fortified companies will survive.

The evidence of how widespread and badly food companies are failing can be immediately and clearly seen in the number and frequency of reported recalls and food borne illness outbreaks. To see this evidence, you only need to take a look at the list of recalls published by the US-Food and Drug Administration, the US Department of Agriculture, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and other regulatory agencies around the world. Recurring incidents in the industry create both the necessity and urgency for a focused approach to managing GMPs, food safety, security defense, and quality.
