PAC, Packaging Consortium is hosting a one-day HACCP course to assist plant managers and quality assurance personnel of packaging companies to become compliant with the IFS PACsecure food safety standard for individual packaging materials.
PAC has united with global standard owner IFS Management to achieve international recognition of the IFS PACsecure food safety standard.
IFS has more than 14,000 certifications for its Global Food Safety Standard (GFSI) recognized IFS Food Standard. In addition to packaging, it manages standards governing food processing, logistics, brokers, cash and carry/wholesale, household and personal care goods.
Among North American firms third party audited to IFS PACsecure are Farnell Packaging, Master Packaging, Maritime Paper, Silgan Plastics, Exopack, Atlantic Packaging, Haremar Plastic Manufacturing, International Paper, Layfield Poly Films and Boehmer Box. In Europe firms certified to IFS PACsecure include Mondi, M. Neeman and Supralon.
IFS PACsecure is process driven based on science and risk. Part of the support material are workbooks covering the 24 common manufacturing process required in the manufacture of paper, flexible plastics, rigid plastics, metals and glass packaging.
Attendees will learn current good manufacturing practices (GMPs) for:
• external and internal premises
• receiving and storage equipment
• sanitation and pest control
• terrorism and security
• recall and traceability
• development of HACCP programs for packaging materials
Course materials include an implementation guidance document for the prerequisite program (good manufacturing practices) to support control of:
• facility conditions
• recall and traceability requirements
• controls of hazards that include acceptable limits, monitoring, deviation, verification procedures and records keeping.
Course facilitator: Larry Dworkin, IFS PACsecure.
