Why you should attend?
Food & beverage facilities covered under FSMA must establish and implement a food safety system that includes analysis of Hazards and risk-based preventative controls. The rule sets the requirements for a written Food Safety Plan that includes the body of knowledge of this class set by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance. This training allows you to be recognized as the Qualified Individual, qualified to write the Food Safety Plan and be a reviewer for the all documentation needed by FDA.
The CFR 21 Part 117 regulation will apply for the large businesses (with 500 employees or more) starting September 19, 2016. The rest will need the Food Safety plan starting September 19, 2017, while very small business with less than one million in sales that need a plan by September 19, 2018. FDA or the CA Department of Public Health Food and Drug Branch will be inspecting your firm for your Food Safety Plan and records after these dates.
Documentation for food & beverage facilities
In the past only Seafood HACCP, Fresh Juice HACCP and Meat and Poultry Firms needed any regulatory documentation for compliance with FDA or USDA. As a result of the FSMA regulations, there are a greater number of companies that qualify. All food products are required to have a Hazard Analysis. Through the results of the Hazard Analysis, if any preventive controls for food safety hazards (Biological, Chemical and Physical hazards) are needed, a Food Safety Plan will be required.
