BRCGS for Product Safety Management: HARPC Training Course

Understand hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls (HARPC) requirements with the BRCGS HARPC training course delivered by SGS.

This BRCGS-approved course enables you to understand the similarities and differences between BRCGS requirements for Food Safety and the Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) Preventive Controls rule.

Please note: This BRCGS 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.

What Will You Learn?

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe how the BRCGS standard for Food Safety aligns with FSMA’s Preventive Controls rule
  • Explain the BRCGS standards and HARPC requirements for development and management of a food safety plan
  • Adapt a BRCGS food safety management system (FSMS) to meet the Preventive Controls regulation
  • Review common non-conformities related to HACCP and HARPC found in BRCGS audits
  • Review risk analysis principles

Learners will need to demonstrate acceptable performance in all these areas.


This course has been designed for:

  • Operational, quality and technical staff responsible for development and the day-to-day management of the HARPC plan
  • BRCGS professionals
