FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Food – FSPCA Curriculum

Course Description

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” or PCQI who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls”.
