The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation (referred to as the Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation) is intended to ensure safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for human consumption in the United States. The regulation requires that certain activities must be completed by a “preventive controls qualified individual” who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls.” This course developed by the FSPCA is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA; successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual.”

During this two-and-a-half-day course, participants will focus on the food safety activities and documentation that support the development and implementation of a preventive controls Food Safety Plan. The course will provide participants with the knowledge that is needed to create a Food Safety Plan to comply with the Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Foods rule.

Cancellation Policy: Applicants may cancel up to two weeks before the workshop for a refund less a $75 cancellation fee. No refunds will be given after September 18, 2018. Substitutions may be made at any time.
