Preventive Controls For Human Food Courses

FSPCA Training for Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls

The Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), in collaboration with the FDA, developed this 20 hour, open-enrollment course. 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) are 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 be completed by a “preventive controls qualified individual” (PCQI). This course is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by the FDA. Completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a PCQI.

In addition to the FSPCA hands-on material, this course will also focus on essential aspects of prerequisite programs such as GMPs, how to write Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), and integrating your HACCP plan into a Preventive Controls Food Safety Plan.
