Implementing Preventive Control (PC) for FSMA
This course is developed based on the FSPCA’s “standardized curriculum”. Delegates will be able to implement a complete set of preventive controls (PC) suited to maintain their FSMA requirements.
The U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) mandates every food processing facility to have a trained resource person or “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual“ (PCQI), who has completed a FDA recognized curriculum course such as the one developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), that is recognized by the FDA. Its intention is to ensure that there is safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for human consumption in the United States.
The regulation requires that the written food safety plan required of food facilities must be prepared, or its preparation overseen by a “PCQI” who has successfully completed training in the “development and application of risk-based preventive controls”.
