Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will cover strategies to effectively use the proper validation and verification techniques to increase the effectiveness of a FSMS. It will show how any food or pharmaceutical company can properly use these techniques to ensure compliance with either ISO 22000 or ISO 9001.

Why Should You Attend:

There tends to be confusion between validation and verification when implementing management systems. Part of this confusion is caused by the National Advisory Committee on the Microbiological Criteria for Foods (NACMCF) HACCP guidelines. Principle 6 (Establish Verification Procedures) describes both validation and verification activities. This has been interpreted that validation is a sub-set of verification. However, in 2008, the Codex Alimentarius Commission published a standard on the validation of control measures, and the Codex separates the concepts of validation and verification.

This webinar will focus on the validation and verification activities that are necessary to develop and maintain a GFSI food safety management system. This session will benefit professionals from food and pharmaceutical companies by helping them understand the proper use of validation and verification techniques to ensure compliance with either ISO 22000 or ISO 9001.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Validation as defined by Codex and ISO 22000.
  • Verification as defined by Codex and ISO 22000.
  • Recognized validation strategies and limits of each strategy.
  • Developing appropriate validation plans.
  • Implementing a verification plan that can drive continuous improvement.
  • How the system can be designed to provide real-time anytime/anywhere transportation control data- farm to fork.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Managers of GFSI food safety management systems
  • Food safety management system team members
  • Directors/VPs of operations and quality in food and pharmaceutical companies
  • Professionals responsible for validation protocols
