Environmental Pathogen Management (EPM)
Environmental Pathogen Management (EPM) is an increasingly important food safety pre-requisite program as Regulatory Bodies move towards more preventive controls in food manufacturing. A large number of international guidance documents for EPM have been developed, but there is currently no clear, globally-accepted framework for implementation, resulting in significant variability in the application of EPM.
This webinar will present a risk-based model for an EPM program, which aligns with international guidelines and expectations. The model offers a pathway for the standardized implementation of EPM in Food company.
