PCQI - Preventive Controls for Animal Food - (27 and 28 June 2023)

FDA Approved Training on the Food Safety Modernization Act - Preventive Controls for Animal Food

If you are looking to become a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) or simply gain a better understanding of the regulations and how to comply with the requirements of the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act and the Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) for animal food, FAMI-QS organises a 2 day-training approved by FDA on the FSMA Preventive Controls for Animal Food.

The course, developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), is the standardized curriculum recognized by FDA. The FSPCA originated in 2011 and it is a collaboration of the FDA and academia to standardize an education/training programme, providing the technical knowledge to the industry on how to work towards compliance with the Preventive Control ruling.

Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements of becoming a “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual” under Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 507 (21 CFR Part 507). The Preventive Controls for Animal Food rule is intended to ensure safe manufacturing, processing, packaging, and holding of animal food products in the United States.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive an FDA-recognized training certificate.

Main components of the programme:

  • Distinguish between Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs), other prerequisite programs, and preventive controls and where they fit into the regulatory framework
  • Understand the hazard analysis process and resources to help conduct an analysis
  • Learn concepts needed to build a food safety plan

The training is delivered in collaboration with AFIA, the American Feed Industry Association.
