Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Food safety compliance training will help you understand the significant differences between the two words and even multiple meanings of the term ’Verification’.


Between USDA and Codex there are slight differences and on top of that the definitions have changed over the years. It is very easy to get confused. By going back to principles, referring to other standards (e.g. ISO9000) and simpler terminology students will clearly understand the intent of both Validation and Verification. Having clarified the intent and principles we will review examples of Verification in both Prerequisite Programs and CCP's.

Validation will be explained, especially as it relates to validation of CCP's though the concept pervades the entire HACCP process. Examples will include Cooking, Cooling, and Allergen Cleaning. We will also discuss the two aspects of Validation; the product risk (microbiological, chemical or physical) as well as the Capability of the process. Both must be understood to ensure the control of CCP's is robust. Methods to verify the entire HACCP System will be covered and how this is different from verifying Prerequisite Programs and CCP's.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • We will begin by bringing some clarity to the confusing terminology. To begin we will back up to review the definition of Monitoring and examples of that activity.
  • Next, Verification We will start with Verification as it relates to Prerequisite programs and HACCP (CCP's).Examples will be given.
  • Validation is a unique term given different meanings over the past few years.The most recent definitions have been much clearer and easier to understand.
  • Verification in its 'macro' sense; "after the operation" is reviewed and examples given.

Who will benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all companies/ manufacturing sites. Those that would benefit most would be:

  • Technical Directors / VP's
  • HACCP Coordinators
  • Operations / Production Managers
  • Quality Assurance Managers
