Assure safe food production and compliancy to FSMA requirements by providing the necessary training to your Food Safety staff.
With the advent of FSMA and the Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food rule, the food safety management strategies of the past have changed. Food Safety Plans that implement preventive controls when food safety risks are identified by a hazard analysis are now mandatory. The Preventive Controls for Human Food rule requires that certain activities be completed by a “preventive controls qualified individual” (PCQI) who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls”.
As of September 19, 2016, FSMA compliance is expected for much of the FDA regulated food industry. A PCQI is required to oversee and manage many aspects of your Food Safety Plan. Small companies have an additional year, however, the September 2017 compliance date will be here sooner than you think.
Deibel Labs provides the food industry with PCQI training courses developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) for FDA. Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual”. Participants receive certificates that affirm PCQI training was obtained following a FDA recognized curriculum.
The two-and-a-half-day workshop provides participants with the knowledge that is needed to develop a Food Safety Plan to comply with the Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation. The course content is focused on the food safety activities and documentation that support the development and implementation of a preventive controls Food Safety Plan.
