 GMPs AND HACCP TRAINING

 

 

 

QMRS provide professional training pertaining to GMPs, GDPs, and HACCP  for Food & Drug industries

QMRS issue eight types of certificates that needed by regulatory authorities

HACCP training courses are accredited by the “International HACCP Alliance”

As per local and international regulatory authorities, the manufacturer should provide training in accordance with a written program for all operational personnel (including the technical, and maintenance personnel) to ensure that all persons are capable of carrying out all the necessary functions.  Management should ensure that

1.  Newly recruited personnel should receive training appropriate to the duties assigned to them. For example, in food industry, provision of training to individuals involved with the preparation, administration, monitoring, and verification of HACCP plans should be available

2.   Ensure continuing training, and its practical effectiveness should be periodically assessed.

3.  Training programs should be approved and training records should be kept.

4.  Trainers and consultants should be qualified for the services they provide. Evidence of this should be included in the training records.

To fulfill these requirements, QMRS designed a number of training courses. In the following table please click on the course that interest you. The link will lead you to a PDF file, which contains more information on the course.

HACCP COURSES (BACKGROUND)

The objectives of HACCP courses are to provide delegates with a comprehensive coverage of the principles and application of HACCP system. Specifically, the courses provide the trainees with the necessary knowledge on HACCP Prerequisite Programs and on the determination of Critical Control Points in the HACCP system (including presentations and application exercises on monitoring system, Corrective actions, Verification procedures, and Documentation & record keeping).

As our training philosophy is “learning by doing is the basic principle underlying the acquisition of any skill”, participants will be asked to practice the actual skill they acquired. In fact, the training program designed to allocate about 60% of the training time for application exercises and the rest of the actual training time is given for the slides presentations.

Also, to ensure that the message get across, we have built the body of the training program to demonstrate the HACCP tasks step by step (in a logical development), and allocate adequate time for each task as per the training manual recommendation on “Food Hygiene and the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point System”, which issued by the Food and Agriculture Organization.

Furthermore, it could be worth mentioning that:

  1. QMRS HACCP courses have been designed to meet the training requirements that established by FAO Codex Alimentarius Commission and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) guidelines.

  2. QMRS HACCP courses and instructor have been assessed and accredited by “The International HACCP Alliance“ Organization.

  3. The course is led by an internationally recognized expert in all aspects of food and drug regulatory affairs.

Your Presenter (Dr. Jalal Mokhalalati, Ph.D.)

Dr. Mokhalalati holds a B.Sc. in Agricultural Sciences from Egypt, M.Sc. degree in Animal Nutrition from University College of North Wales (UK), and a Ph.D. degree in the field of Human Nutrition from University of London (1981). Since then, he wrote a number of books and scientific papers, and he worked in various countries for different sectors, including university teaching.

In 2001, he retired from the last job with Abbott laboratories as a head of medical and regulatory affairs department in Saudi Arabia, and started his own consultation office in Canada to serve the Food and Drug industry in all aspects of HACCP training, site licensing (GMPs), Good Documentation Practices, and Health products registration with Health Canada.

New  HACCP IN SMALL AND/OR LESS-DEVELOPED FOOD BUSINESSES

 

LEARNING OUTCOME

It has been reported that food businesses are facing numerous constraints, with the result that HACCP implementation has been partial or ineffective. Therefore, systems have been developed with a more flexible approach and are usually referred to as "HACCP-based systems" or "systems based on the principles of HACCP". They are faithful to the seven principles of HACCP, but do not require the business to follow the traditional 12-step approach as outlined in the Codex guidelines.

THE COURSE OBJECTIVE

Is to review the current version of the Recommended International Code of HACCP System guidelines, which was revised by the Codex Alimentarius Commission in 2003 (CAC/RCP 1-1969, Rev. 4-2003), and to compare the new guideline with the Canadian (CFIA) and OMAFRA (Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs) HACCP ADVANTAGE Guidelines.

 

Our aim is to provide the food processors and other interested parties with practical solutions for the implementation of HACCP in small and/or less-developed food businesses (SLDBs). The course will address the following topics:

1.     Describe the HACCP-based system concept.

2.     Challenges (Worldwide) facing small food business sector.

3.     Define HACCP compliance barriers and identify causes

4.     Assessment of HACCP compliance

5.     Develop possible solutions

6.     Overview of HACCP ADVANTAGE Prerequisite documentation requirements

7.     The new approaches to facilitate HACCP application in SLDBs

8.     Examples of new HACCP Forms

9.     Example of a new (Easy) DECISION TREE to identify/determine the CCPs

10.  Example of the new HACCP worksheet.

11.  Establish the  appropriate documentation pertaining to HACCP principles.


If you want to know more on the most recent version of the FAO Codex HACCP System and its amendments, we recommend registering for this novel course.
