Course outline:

The HARPC plan for any food manufacturing site is the core of their entire food safety program.

The BRC Global Standards hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls (HARPC) course will cover the similarities and differences between requirements of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety and the Food Safety Modernization Act's (FSMA) Preventive Controls rule.

BRC Global Standards' 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.

This course is part of the BRC Global Standards Professional recognition programme.

The course is aimed at:

  • staff responsible for developing and the day-to-day management of the HARPC plan.


Corporate staff overseeing HARPC systems, and HACCP team members would also benefit.

At the end of the course you will:

  • Understand how the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety aligns with FSMA’s Preventive Controls rule.
  • Be able to explain the BRC Global Standards and HARPC requirements for development and management of a food safety plan.
  • Have learned how to adapt a BRC Global Standards food safety management system (FSMS) to meet Preventive Controls regulation.
  • Be able to review common non-conformities related to HACCP and HARPC found in BRC Global Standards audits.
  • Be able to review risk analysis principles.
