Service Description

Our one-of-a-kind 21 CFR 117 training allows the individual to gain a complete understanding of the new requirements and how they apply to your organization. The Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance (FSPCA) designed this 20-hour course in collaboration with the FDA. It is the ONLY PCQI course presently recognized by the FDA as meeting the new requirements. Our course is taught by Lead Instructors for the FSPCA who have successfully completed the Lead Instructor curriculum required to be an official instructor. Upon completing the course, you will meet the requirements as a FSPCA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) who can manage a food safety preventive controls program in accordance with the Hazard-Analysis and Preventive Controls Rule of the US Food and Drug Administration (21 CFR 117). Requirements of the new regulations include distinctive characteristics that differ from HACCP and from GFSI protocols (SQF, BRC, FSSC 22000) in important ways. As with all D. L. Newslow & Associates, Inc. courses, the attendees are encouraged to bring their company’s HACCP Plans, Preventive Controls, PRPs, and any other food safety programs to review during breakout sessions. They should feel free to ask any specific questions that may relate to their organization and food sector of interest. Quality, Food Safety, and HACCP managers, food safety HACCP team leaders and team members; those responsible for compliance, quality assurance managers, sanitation managers, system implementation associates (i.e. ISO, FSSC, SQF, BRC, IFS, etc.), regulatory managers, and any associates responsible for specific GFSI compliance and FSMA preventive controls will benefit from this training. You will learn: An enhanced understanding of the requirements of FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Food and how these requirements apply to your organization and food sector. Criteria used to identify and implement specific preventive controls for your organization. Process for identifying gaps within your operation between a GFSI approved scheme and FSMA requirements, and real-world techniques for addressing them. Practical applications, common challenges, and pitfalls. 21 CFR 117 training requirements, expectations, and record-keeping strategies to ensure complete compliance.
