FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Foods Training


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. Our Lead Instructor (certificate # f440bcea) for FSPCA Preventive Controls For Human Food, Ana Sedarati will deliver this 2.5 day course.
