Microbiological Environmental Monitoring Programs Development and Implementation

The National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Foods (NACMCF) defines “step” as a point, procedure, operation in the food safety system from primary production to final consumption.
The goal of this class is to provide information on how to establish solid validated safeguards at all steps along the global and national food supply chains using current scientific, technical, statutory, regulatory, managerial and other tools to control microbiological food safety hazards, especially Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella spp., to ensure the safety of foods . This course assist food industries under USDA HACCP, FDA FSMA, HACCP and other entities to prepare required microbiological environmental monitoring programs.
