DID YOU KNOW
FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Participant Courses to be held at IFSH
Course Description: 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.”
The Preventive Controls for Human Food rule and Preventive Controls for Animal Food rule are now final, and compliance dates for some businesses begin in September 2016.
The FDA is fielding questions on the Preventive Controls regulations for human food and / or animal food.
A research paper on Advances in Pathogen Detection, co-authored by an IFSH staff member, is available in Food Technology Magazine.
