Achieving FSIS HACCP Validation Compliance

Free Webinar Series
March 15th and March 17th, 2016

Small and very small plants must be in compliance with the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service’s HACCP Validation Guidance by April 4, 2016. These webinars will provide practical information on how to meet the expectations of FSIS for scientific support and in-plant validation, the two critical areas that are the focus of the compliance guidelines. The speakers will focus on helping personnel identify the correct data to gather to support their system, and to help plants identify areas that need improvement prior to the April deadline.
