Course "Complying With New FDA FSMA Preventive Control Rules: Planning Valid Preventive Food Safety Controls" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
Upon completing this course participants will leave with a preliminary preventive control implementation plan and will:
  • Understand US FDA final rules for the Preventive Controls for Human and Animal Foods
  • Leave the training with your company PCQI approved preventive control and food defense plans
  • Define and review your current system to identify gaps in your preventive controls planning.
  • Learn to close any gaps
  • Identify any needed procedures
  • Know your requirements for control over your supply chain
  • Be able to plan and implement Preventive Controls
  • Be able to perform environmental monitoring
  • Know how cross contamination can impact your preventive control plan
  • Know the difference between validation and verification
  • Understand and be able to use statistical process controls basics
  • Be able to plan and implement a team approach to preventive controls
  • Be able to help your food importers to jump through FDA hoops
  • Develop a system to risk rank your suppliers
  • Have a plan in hand that will pass any validation check for preventive controls
  • Understand some of the technology and costs that can help you establish preventive controls
  • Be able to prove that your system actually prevents food safety problems
  • Be able to document and report results to upper management, external food safety auditors and FDA auditors
  • Save your company money Establish simple, low cost complete data collection and reporting systems.
  • Establish team building between food safety and quality personnel to develop and implement changes to your current system
  • Establish a completely documented system

Why should you attend:

Planning, implementing, verifying and validating preventive food safety controls is where the rubber meets the road in terms of prevention. You and your team can come to this training to collectively develop the food safety plan and defense plans, learn to implement the plan, verify plan implementation, and prove that you are actually preventing food safety problems.

According to the FDA all food facilities "must monitor their controls, conduct verification activities, provide hard data to validate that the controls are effective, take appropriate corrective actions, and maintain records documenting these actions". This training session will present a practical approach to provide you and your team members with needed understanding and tools and a basic strategy for designing, implementing and validating preventive process and product controls.

You will develop a basic plan during this training and have it checked by the instructor.

Regardless of your ability to understand or validate processes, process validation is now a legal requirement and you cannot wait for the FDA to develop their ability to assist your company
