Whether your food business has a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system in place to manage food safety or you are implementing a HACCP-based system for the first time, you need to be in compliance with the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) preventive controls requirements. This course provides the fundamentals of SFCR preventive controls and traceability requirements and options for integrating HACCP into an SFCR-compliant preventive control plan (PCP).

This program is also offered through our partners, Alberta Food Processors Association and Perennia (Nova Scotia). Please visit their websites to see course dates and availability.

Prerequisite: Good working knowledge of PRPs and HACCP, either through practical experience in a food manufacturing facility or completion of NSF HACCP I: Prerequisite Programs & HACCP II: Developing your HACCP Plan training (or equivalent two-day HACCP Food Management System training).
