The final rule for “Preventive Controls for Human Food” was released in August 2015 for the implementation regulations in the area of preventative controls for human and animal food. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires food facilities to have a written food safety plan in place that includes an analysis of hazards and risk-based preventive controls to minimize or prevent the identified hazards.
The following online course, Preventive Controls for Human Food (PCHF), will go in depth with the requirements for Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls based food safety plan training. Participants will get familiar with all requirements of a Preventive Controls based food safety plan and how to design the plan.
Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual”. Under the Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation, the responsibilities of the qualified individual include to perform or oversee:
- Preparation of the Food Safety Plan
- Validation of Preventive Controls
- Records Review
- Reanalysis of the Food Safety Plan
In addition, best practices and examples will be presented and participants can apply the freshly gained knowledge during practical exercises which show how to achieve compliance to the requirements.
The course, developed by the FSPCA, is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by the FDA. This workshop will be conducted by qualified FSPCS Lead Instructors from the University of Nebraska Food Processing Center.
In addition to the FSPCA course completion requirements, our delivery will require passing an exam, then the participant will receive a certificate. Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “Preventative Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI)”.
The course is designed for:
- Quality Control Personnel
- Food Safety Personnel
Course Length – 20 Hours
