Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:
Validation and Verification are specifically required in section 417.4 of 9 CFR and are the 8th and 11th steps in the FAO/WHO Food Standards established by the Codex Alimentarius on HACCP.

According to the FSIS, inadequate validation of the control mechanisms have resulted in HACCP programs which are ineffective at controlling the Hazards they are designed to address. Likewise, verification is the key to the ongoing assurance that the system is being implemented, as designed, to consistent reduce or eliminate pathogens, foreign material and chemical contaminants that are inherent or likely to occur in the product or process.

Topic Background:
HACCP is an acronym for the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points program employed by the food industry to improve food safety. It is mandated by the USDA, and FDA in some food products and encouraged in all. GFSI, Restaurant and Retail customers base food safety audits on an implemented HACCP program. Two critically overlooked and misunderstood elements of the program are validation and verification. Respectively, they are the foundation and the lynchpin of the program. Failure to properly implement either is considered a critical failure to the establishment of the program in the emerging GFSI audits and is subject of new guidance being developed by FSIS.

Validation and Verification are specifically required in section 417.4 of 9 CFR and are the 8th and 11th steps in the FAO/WHO Food Standards established by the Codex Alimentarius on HACCP. They are required for compliance with the standards as required by International and Major US domestic food safety programs.
