FOOD SAFETY PREVENTIVE CONTROL ALLIANCE (FSPCA)’S PCQI-PREVENTIVE CONTROLS FOR HUMAN FOODS
The mission of Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) is to support safe food production for the U.S. market by developing a core curriculum and corresponding technical & educational material about food safety risk-reduction preventive controls that complies with relevant federal regulations. FSPCA has developed this training material for a variety of delivery modes, including classroom-based face-to-face, hands-on and distance-learning modules and hybrid mechanisms of delivery of the training to the industry.
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 certain activities which 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; successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual.”
TÜV SÜD South Asia conducts a 2.5 days Preventive Controls for Human Foods – PCQI training program as per Food Safety Preventive Control Alliance (FSPCA). The course, taught by FSPCA Lead Instructors, concentrates on FDA-recognized standardized curriculum. Our instructors will share their experiences and knowledge as per the standards requirement.
