During March 8-10, 2016 JIFSAN hosted the Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance (FSPCA) training program entitled Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation, also referred to simply as Preventive Controls for Human Food. The regulation requires that certain activities 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. Successful completion of this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual.”
The training was led by Bradd Eldridge, who is a FSPCA Qualified Lead Instructor with 25 years of food safety, quality and manufacturing experience. His long relationship with key FDA FSMA team members enhanced the exceptional program experience for all participants, which included a highly interactive group of 20 people from academia, industry and service sectors. There was a great environment for learning and the program was a resounding success.
