The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation are intended to ensure safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for human consumption in the United States. The regulation requires domestic and international food facilities (i.e., food manufactures, processors, packers and distributors) that are registred with the FDA to develop and implement a Food Safety Plan that complies with the requirements and that certain activities must be completed by a "Preventive Controls Qualified Individual" (PCQI). 

The PCQI course for human food was developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) and is the only "standardized curriculum" recognized by the Food and Drucg Administration (FDA).
The Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance is a broad-based public-private alliance, consisting of key industry, academic and government stakeholders, whose mission is to support safe food production by developing a nationwide core curriculum, training and outreach programs to assist companies producing human and animal food in complying with the preventive controls regulations that are part of the Food Safety Modernization Act. 

This 2.5-days course will help the participants to meet the FDA’s PCQI training requirements, understand the requirements of the Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food, and develop and implement the Food Safety Plan according to the Preventive Controls Human Food regulation.
