Course Description
Food Safety Management System - ISO 22000 HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point), ISO 22000 Gap Analysis, Critical Control Points and limits, Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Preventive and Corrective Actions, Verification and Validation Procedures Food Chain Definition from PRAXIOM RESEARCH GROUP LIMITED - www.praxiom.com The food chain consists of the entire sequence of stages and operations involved in the creation and consumption of food products. This includes every step from initial production to final consumption. It includes the production, processing, distribution, storage, and handling of all food and food ingredients. The food chain also includes organizations that do not directly handle food. These include organizations that produce feed for animals that produce food and organizations that produce feed for animals that will be used as food. It also includes organizations that produce materials that will eventually come into contact with food or food ingredients.

Target Audience
This course is intended for food and agricultural chemists, public health technologists, Instrument vendors, crop and feed producers, primary food and second-level food producers, food processors, wholesalers, retailers, public control agencies, laboratory managers, quality control and assurance specialists. Beginner - Intermediate Although the course content is in the beginner-intermediate category, advanced participants will gain a wider outlook on the realistic application of the management system. The level of the material has been designed taking into consideration that participants may have a basic knowledge of management systems - but not compulsory. The instructor intends to promote considerable interaction between the instructor and the participants, and among participants themselves. This always results in a beneficial exchange of data, problems and problem solving.
