The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the nation’s food safety system by shifting the focus from responding to foodborne illness to preventing it. All facilities that must register under section 415 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C) Act are required to comply with FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Food.
FSPCA PREVENTIVE CONTROLS FOR HUMAN FOOD COURSE
According to FSMA, 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 the safe manufacturing, processing, packing, and holding of food products for human consumption in the United States. All facilities that must register under section 415 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C) Act are required to have a PCQI. 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 the FDA; successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive control qualified individual.”
These courses are taught by Lead Instructors trained by the FSPCA, who have been instructed in how to teach the FDA-recognized standardized curriculum. Participants will receive an official FSPCA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual certificate issued by the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) after attending this training program.
Sustainable Management System (SMS Inc.) is proud that we have a professional instructor who has a Lead Instructor certificate issued by the FSPCA for this course. We hope that the participants after taking the course can become PCQIs to implement and maintain the food safety system according to the FDA requirements of FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Food.
