• Adjust your EMP to FSMA and FSSC 22000
  • Improve effectiveness of the Cleaning program
  • Greater control of Environmental Pathogens
  • Better control of sensitive raw materials
  • Includes practical sessions of sampling and mitigation plan in the course


Provide the technical knowledge to interpret, develop and effectively implement an environmental monitoring program under the FSMA regulation, as well as FSSC 22000 in its additional requirements for the control of Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella in foods considered ready to eat that have then gone through a thermal death process or not and that have been exposed before packing.
