The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard-Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls Rule of the US Food and Drug Administration indicates only a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual can appropriately manage a food safety preventive controls program. Does this apply to you?
If your facility is required to register with the FDA under section 415 of the Food, Drug, & Cosmetic Act, you must comply if your activities include manufacturing, processing, packing or holding human food.
Many activities required by rule can only be conducted or overseen by a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual. This is not the same as a HACCP-certified individual. This requires more to be in compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act Rules.
This 2.5 day course, developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance, uses the ONLY curriculum recognized by the FDA as one way to meet requirements. Successful completion results in participants’ recognition as a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual, who can design, implement and maintain the company Food Safety Plan. The course will be taught by a Lead Instructor for the FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Course.
