Meeting the new FDA requirements: Preventive Controls for Animal Food (Orlando)

The Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) designed this 2-day (20 hour) workshop in collaboration with the FDA. It is presently the ONLY FDA-recognized curriculum for the Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Animal Food requirements. The course is taught by a certified FSPCA Lead Instructor who also has many years of experience as a food safety professional working within this food sector.  Successful completion meets the FDA requirements for a FSPCA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) in accordance with FSMA rule as defined in 21CFR507.  A PCQI is a professional who can manage a Food Safety Plan at a facility in accordance with FSMA requirements. Participants receive an official “FSPCA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual for Animal Food” certificate upon completion.  Lead Instructor: Debby Newslow (lead instructor); a second instructor to be announced. 

The Food Safety Modernization Act, or FSMA, is completely changing the way we think about the manufacture, transportation, distribution and storage of animal food. Many professionals working with ‘animal food”, including ingredients, mixed animal feed, pet food, or those who supply the feed and pet food industries through either primary products or by-products, are concerned about the changes this rule may require in their day-to-day operations as well as possible new requirements. This course explains these requirements along with providing application examples and decision-making logics. Training materials include the FSPCA comprehensive manual, key terms, concepts, and reference materials to aid in communication tasks.

Who Must Comply with the Hazard Analysis and Preventive Controls Rule? Facilities required to register with FDA under section 415 of the Food, Drug, & Cosmetic Act and/or Registration of Food Facilities (21 CFR part 1, subpart H; the section 415 registration regulations) must comply if they manufacture process, pack or hold food intended for animals. Compliance with the cGMP portion of this rule becomes mandatory for large firms in September 2016. Compliance dates are staggered with cGMP compliance required first, then giving additional time to comply with the Preventive Controls requirements. Other firms may have additional time to comply based on the number of employees and dollar amount of revenue generated from sales of animal food.


Quality, Food Safety, and HACCP managers, food safety HACCP team leaders and team members; those responsible for compliance, quality assurance managers, sanitation managers, regulatory managers, and any associates responsible for specific GFSI compliance and FSMA preventive controls for animal food manufacture including both primary products or by-products. Experienced food safety managers may learn about new and different information related to their areas of expertise.
