From HACCP to HARPC: What's Best-In-Class and How to Get There -- Complimentary Webinar October 4, 2013 -- Sponsored by SafetyChain Software & Food Safety Tech

Special Guest Speaker, Debby Newslow, Winner of the 2013 NSF International Food Safety Leadership Award for Training, Will Discuss the Key Differences Between HAACP and HARPC, and Practical Advice for Making the Transition

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - September 24, 2013) - SafetyChain Software, the leader in Food Safety Chain Management solutions that helps ensure food safety and quality compliance for regulatory, 3rd party and customer requirements -- while also creating operational efficiencies that save time and money -- is pleased to announce a new complimentary FSQA leadership series webinar, "From HACCP to HARPC -- What's Best-In-Class and How to Get There."  

The webinar, co-sponsored with Food Safety Tech and featuring Debby Newslow, President of D. L. Newslow & Associates, Inc., will be held on Friday, October 4, at 10:00 a.m. PT (12:00 p.m. CT, 1:00 pm ET). To register click here.

FDA's proposed Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) provides  a preventive framework to ensure food safety, but there's a lot of confusion on how HARPC (Hazard Analysis Risk-Based Preventive Controls) plans differ from existing USDA-based HACCP programs. This complimentary 60-minute webcast will provide useful guidance on topics that include:

  • An overview of the HARPC proposed rule
  • Comparing HACCP to HARPC -- "If it looks and smells like HACCP, is it really HACCP in disguise?" And if not, how close (or not) are they?
  • How does HARPC fit in with GFSI?
  • Why you should adopt HARPC today and how your organization benefits
  • How do you get from HACCP to HARPC?
  • Key differentiators between CCPs and PRPs

Ms. Newslow will also take audience questions live, and be joined by SafetyChain SVP and Co-Founder Barbara Levin, who will discuss how technology supports creating a best-in-class preventive control program.
