CCPs vs oPRPs: a Pragmatic Approach to Choosing and Classifying Food Safety Control Measures

Taking place:

Friday, 20 November 2015 - 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM UK Time
This is a 10.00 AM Eastern US Start

David Rosenblatt, Director of Training and Veterinary Consultant, Sher Consulting and Training 
Webinar Overview:

In 2005 the ISO 22000 standard for food safety management systems introduced the novel concept of “Operational Pre-requisite Programs”. According to the standard, the oPRPs are to join the CCPs (Critical Control Points) in creating the backbone of the system. Since then, the use of this crucial food safety tool and its differentiation from the traditional CCP has caused much confusion and controversy. In this Webinar we will refer to real case studies and offer a very pragmatic and easy to understand methodology for identifying and classifying critical control measures throughout the food chain.

Nicole: He isn't tlking right now he is polling

congthe: sorry,  i cant hear anything

silvia : it is a pitty is a good presentation with voice problem

Awotayo Oyeyemi: jerry

daniele: Simon, there is no difference in sound when you mute yourself.

Liz: sound better

Sydney: THe volume is quite low... really struggling to hear

Simon Timperley: This software has no logic!  If you are stuck please log out and back in again.

Tracey: Sound perfect in Canada  now!

Barak Obama: Stupid software.

Larbi: What CMs should be controlled for fresh fish reception: theCCP is  histamine content <  30 ppm

silvia : sorry not better

Nicole: That was my fault I paused the scxreen when I clicked on a poll answer, very sorry

silvia : i am thinking to live

silvia : sorry

Simon Timperley: No worries Silvia

silvia : the subject is important because the >ISO 22000 is not clear enough to

silvia : have a look we need this pressentation to clirig


AJOMIWE IMELDA NNEKA: Just able to login,due to bad network.

silvia : Bye bye for me

VINOTH: Apart from any temperature fluctations what are all the CCPs can be stated in any food restaurants?

AJOMIWE IMELDA NNEKA: Can't hear anything

Jaime: David's headset is not stereo so that's why the sound is low

Barak Obama: Don'y go Sylvia!

Nicole: My quality is good

silvia : no for me

ray: bad signal here also

Laura: How is there a diference between a PRP and an oPRP.

silvia : still low

Cecile: Can the ISO 22000 oPRP be defined as a CP in IFS Fod??

Helene: oprp has to be in operatio

Helene: operation

Helene: prp is just prerequisite program

Réda: What clearly differentiate CCP s and dPRP

Tricia Bartlett: Laura the differnece is that your hazard analysis shows that that particular PRP is essential at controlling a specif hazard

AJOMIWE IMELDA NNEKA: Am not getting anything since I can't hear.

Tricia Bartlett: PRP's are general but the oPRP is specifica to a particular hazard

Noa: PRP's are defined by ISO 22002-1

Laura: Tricia - so you are sayign the difference is the risk factor assocaited with a PRP makes it an oPRP? The examples he provided cover off the majority of the PRP's. 

Tricia Bartlett: Yes Noa

HOW: Checking of Raw Materials (Frozen & Chilled) upon receipt ,does it consider as a CCP or OPRP?

AJOMIWE IMELDA NNEKA: I hope we are going to get a replay of this webinar as usual, Simon.

Alina : points of control in PRP - OPRP

miguel: A CCP should be able to monitor "everything" eg at receipt you

Pamela: @ HOW: i would say: OPRP

Tope: I believe oprp is iso 22000 and prep is haccp

Simon Timperley: Of course video and slide in 24 hours

miguel: dwould have to monitor 100% of your material

OLUBUNMI: I think it can ensure traceability

AJOMIWE IMELDA NNEKA: I trust you ,because am leaving since I can't hear nor see.

silvia : still not clear with headphones

OLUBUNMI: Yea you just mentioned that

silvia : sorry i am liv

silvia : sorry i am living

Paulo: i wish my company had these pest sensors at my job. Pretty cool!

Tom: We have detailed decision trees for identifying which process steps are in fact “critical control pointsâ€.Can you suggest any comparable decision trees for identifying old PRPs from the universe of PRPs?

Michael: First time I have seen such pest control mechanism. Rather impressive

Lupita: Can oPRPs be considered the "preventive controls" derived form the FSMA in the US?

Alina :  laboratory control swabs ( samples) from the hands, contact surfaces - oPRP?

Noa: sound like since fiction//

Noa: Alina - yes

Ratna: why OPRP is the CCP of GMP? we determine magnet in our production line as OPRP, but it's not part of GMP

Tricia Bartlett: Great question Tom

nourreddine: thank you

HOW: Does Environment monitoring consider as OPRP?

Roberto: YEAH! OK!

OLUBUNMI: HI SIMON can we have this video watched later. this is necessary due to the breaking audio

Pamela: I love this emonitoring systems but in France if we implement it we will have serious issues with  Unions. it is pretty good and it may reduce significantly food poisonning issues.

Nicole: Handwashing is an issue

Ayman: Nice topic ! but can not hear anything!

HOW: Can ingredients be identified as CCP?

miguel: ony ifyou check 100% of ingerdients

Paulo: There is a hand washing system that if you start washing your hands and you try to do it quickly. It will sound an alarm.

Amy: Can the link for the video be made available to people on the call.  That would be helpful

Manveen Soomal: If the PRP is label application on finished product,how can this be monitored?

Alyssa: good evidence, If in complaince,  if you have to defend in court

Philip: Is the assumption that real time / more monitoring (e.g. video monitoring) leads to more effective controls for OPRPs?

miguel: the main thing (not EASY) is to make people understand WHY they have ot wash hands, or you can fight that topic for hte next 100 years

James: I can't really hear

OLUBUNMI: Thanks SIMON the video is clearer

Paulo: i use ATP every day.

Pamela: @ miguel: fully ok with you

ramesh: it is not coming through!

Cecile: @Miguel I agree with you

miguel: we are shifting focus for 2016 traning program to really try to make people understand

Steve: I've used Hygiena ATP testers for years. Love them sor sanitation validation

mohamed: I accept Mr. Silvia comments

miguel: was also suggested by a very good FSSC auditor we just had

Philip: Can you suggest some affordable tools / techniques that an SME can use? Hard to imagine an SME in Uganda affording themonitoring tools suggested for OPRP monitoring.

ula: Audio is poor can't hear anything

Carol Andrade: how do you determine an OPRP

Ganesh: Metal detector is oPRP or CCP?

Alyssa: Miguel, we just got the H ATP system. Great customer service in getting us started. Easy to use.

Cecile: @Carol Andrade have a look at the ISO 22000 decision tree

Kirsten: This is very helpful as we look to convert our HACCP plan to HARPC

Pamela: @ carol: by your decision tree

Ganesh: Mostly Metal detector is considered as CCP but I am not convienced?

Steve: metal detection is definitely a CCP

Sydney: If i put a sieve on a mixing line, does that become an oPRP

Carlos: metal detector is CCP and magnet is ORP

nourreddine: thank you

Cecile: @philip, if you cannot afford technicological oPRP monitoring I think than then you will need to have a thoughter supervision

nourreddine: good prestentation

Arquelio Ramirez: Oprp similar to Preventive Controls(FSMA)?

Carlos: Heard once that the difference between CCP's and oPRP's is that oPRP's do not have critical limits. What is your opinion?

Ganesh: how can possible to monitor metal detector which is a requirement in CCP

miguel: @ Alyssa - HATP is the name of the company?

Philip: Thanks Cecile.

Roderick: oPRP's vs FSMA Preventive Control?

Alyssa: no Hygienia, like you have.  :)

Ganesh: also critical limit cannot be defined for metal detector

Tricia Bartlett: volume

Kirsten: Also best explanation I've heard of OPRP -- now the challenge is to figure out best and most practical way to validate, verify and monitor!

Alina : oPRPs have a crirical limits in low usually

HOW: Is  Blastfreezing in frozen yeast-proofed dough(Savory fillings) considered as CCP?

Aura: What is the difference between preventive controls (FSMA) and oPRPs?

Tricia Bartlett: Perfect Kirsten!

Steve: Critical limits for Metal Detection can be measured by perameters set in detection. ie 2.5 mm...so on

miguel: @alyssa - OK. we do have 3M - works good but is not as versatile as Hygien

Julia: sounds like the best way to determine your oPRPs (the CCPs of GMPs) would best be determined through zoning program.

Yoga: is there a critical limit for oPRP or another control limit?

KRISHNAN: E monitoring concept from Dr. David is good - would go a long way to improve the PRP implementation.

Nicole: he is breaking up on my end too

Arquelio Ramirez: OPRP similar toPreventive Controls(FSMA)?

miguel: critical limit for metal detection should only be that the MD works. set your operational targets as 2.0, 2.5 etc

Noa: oPRP don't have citical limits

Christi: Any Risk Assement examples you can share?

Mary Ann: Are there any legal impllications to monitoring people with video in the work place?

Liz: is this also going to be enforced with BRC accreditation's?

Eva: Can you consider the process organization an OPRP in small medium company?

Ganesh: Steve that is perfectly fine and we normally check it before starting of production but what is severity or can say critical limit.

mohamed: already i am using Luminometer to identify the allergens

Julia: sounds like the best way to determine your oPRPs (the CCPs of GMPs) would best be determined through zoning program.

Steve: Guidlines are anything over 7mm is critical per FDA guidlines

Cecile: @liz, can you mark you question as a question as I was to ask the same

Ganesh: Miguel meaning below 2.0 metal doesnt make any hazzard?

Dora: Examples of validation of CM in oPRP?

Noa: David, what is the critical limit for metal detector?

Liz: is this also going to be enforced with BRC accreditation's?

Kulsum Begum: What is the standard method to identify CCP

Helene: In the orchard (apples) does haccp apply? And are there CCPs

miguel: @ganesg / steve  what I mean is set your critical limit as being "functional metal detector" . then you describe your operational target as teh size you want (eg <  7mm)

Cecile: @ liz thank you

Steve: My metal detectors are set for 2mm anytime we change products or shift change or break

OLUBUNMI: E-monitoring, Pest sensors innstallation: how much does it impact on production cost if it must be implemented in a medium sized food plant

Kirsten: Genesh - it's about "controlling to an acceptable level" - Small fragments are undesirable but unlikely to pose a significant health risk AND  not reasonable for reliable detection

Ganesh: we use 1, 1.2 and 1,5

Alina :  We have warehousing and storage PRP (ISO 22002) , and the point of control environment, becouse it is important, it is oPRP

Sydney: Still confusing me with the oPRP and CCP

miguel: that way you can use different sizes as needed i case your detector has a  temporary problem and you need to use a larger piece ( < 7mm of course)

Ganesh: We also consider metal detector as CCP but I didnt get answer why we cannot consider it as OPRP?

miguel: concept: if your MDetector functions and rejects properly, then you have assured the ccp. you utilize a target test piee, anything less that (eg) 7mm to ensure that is the case.  we have this semantic. then we use the very smallets target we can

Cecile: @Ganesh as far as I have understood it, an oPRP doesn't have critical limits such as a CCP

KRISHNAN: I feel that Identification of PRP, OPRP and CCP is a lot easier for a Food Technologist if a proper and thorough Process Flow chart is made

Cecile: ok this is confusing me then

miguel: can be OPRP as long as you can prove it b history, or type of operational sensitivity ewtc

Jaime: it can be an OPRP or a CCP depends on what is the last line of defense

miguel: flowchart and DECISION TREE is super useful

Steve: Depends on your hazard analysis of the step. The severity

Alina : the standard ISO 2200  is no question of the monitoring on-line, oPRP...

Emmanuel: are there any other measures for controlling or monitoring hand washing and sanitising apart from the RFID and video monitoring. Any cheaper montioring or more socialble control

KRISHNAN: Very simple definition of CCP - a process step beyond this , there is no step to stop or control Hazard entry

IRENE: this question about metal detector as  ccp or oprp, could you please send us the reply because couldn't hear the answer

HOW: I still a bit confused. Can ingredient be a CCP?

Maxine : Hi David i am understanding that an OPRP Iis a PRP THAT IS CRITICAL

Jessica Butler: great lecture

Tricia Bartlett: In TS 22002/1 there are set list of PRP's however is it not possible for additional PRP's to be selected by the organization? For example Chemical Control?

Ganesh: @Krishnan, this is definition of CCP but in actual situations this definination doesnt work

Aliyu: if an oprp can have a CL, should it nit be upgraded to a ccp?

Noa: @Tricia - yes, you can difine more PRP's

1) Ingredients should not be considered as a CCP since specification of the ingredients are included in a purchase requirement and hazards are taken care of by the supplier/manufacturer. Is this true?

2) If the supplier is not able to provide COA or evidence , does that mean this ingredient is a CCP eg. Aflatoxin in nuts or flour etc where toxins cannot be eliminated from the process that follows.

3) Is it true that OPRP has no control limits while CCP has control limits? Any examples to quote?

4) Storage temperature(Chilled/Frozen) is considered as an OPRP?

1) Ingredients should not be considered as a CCP since specification of the ingredients are included in a purchase requirement and hazards are taken care of by the supplier/manufacturer. Is this true?

If using iso22002-1 for prerequisites, this includes ingredients from memory. So YES.

2) If the supplier is not able to provide COA or evidence , does that mean this ingredient is a CCP eg. Aflatoxin in nuts or flour etc where toxins cannot be eliminated from the process that follows.

See No.1 so NO (the supplier would probably not be initially approved)

3) Is it true that OPRP has no control limits while CCP has control limits? Any examples to quote?

The standard mentions critical limits. No comments from memory regarding control limits. so NO.

4) Storage temperature(Chilled/Frozen) is considered as an OPRP?

Depends on the risk assessment/ccp-oprp classification methodology.



Hi howkimkee,


I assumed you refer to either iso22000 or fssc22000.

Please see my opinions above.

Kind Regards,
