Both the HACCP Systems Final Rule of USDA and the FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Foods regulations of FDA include provisions for plants to meet in relation to cleaning and sanitizing. This course outlines the requirements for both sets of regulations (FDA and USDA). In addition, it addresses the science of cleaning and sanitation, how to prevent biofilm formation, and how to maintain sanitary conditions before and during operations, and things that should be emphasized in the management of sanitation procedures. The course also includes a section that specifically addresses the needs of plants that produce ready-to-eat (RTE) and heat-and-serve (HAS) products. This course is a must-have for anyone with responsibilities associated with sanitation and/or its effectiveness.
