Doing business with Preventive Control Plans

In January 2019 we will be seeing our first glance of the new Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) and what they will mean for Canada’s food and beverage processing industry. The foundation of the new regulations will surround “Preventive Control Plans” also known as PCPs. CFIA will be enforcing the new regulation and will evaluate your organization to be in compliance with PCPs.

FPHRC is pleased to offer Canada’s only full length online Preventive Control Plans (PCP) course that is catered to all audiences – whether you’re a seasoned expert or are new to food safety- this course is for you! The course is aligned with CFIA’s new standards and will help you quickly get up to speed on all the new information.

 

You probably have some questions like… What does this mean for my food business? What if I already have a HACCP Plan, do I also need PCPs? Are all businesses required to have PCPs? We can help you answer those!

 

Did you know under the new regulations?

  • ALL food and beverage businesses, regardless of size, will be required to implement “preventive control measures” in the next 1 to 3 years.

 

  • All organizations earning over $100K in gross annual food sales will also be required to have “written preventive control plans” in addition to implemented measures.

About this course

An Introduction to
Preventive Control Plans (PCP)
This interactive self-paced course will increase your awareness and understanding of the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, its impact on your business, and Preventive Control Plans (PCP).
You will learn about why Food Safety and Traceability are the foundation of all HACCP-based plans, and how we all share a greater responsibility to insure the safety of our food. This course will introduce you to the concept of preventive food safety controls, what they are, how they fit in with your business, and if your business is required to have a PCP.
We will cover how controls are developed and how to approach implementation of the new or updated plan. This is a great course for food businesses, importers, exporters, processors, retailers, food safety experts, consultants and those who need an overall understanding of both the new proposed CFIA regulations, licensing, and origin based concept of PCPs. This course will provide you with practical training on how to get started.
