    This 4.5 day workshop is a combination of our Meeting the New FDA Requirements - FSPCA: Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls workshop and our FSMA vs GFSI: Changes Necessary For Compliance workshop. This provides attendees the opportunity to stay the week attending both workshops at a considerable savings. SAVE! This FSPCA compliant course was designed by the Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance (FSPCA) in collaboration with the FDA. At this time, it is the ONLY course recognized by FDA that meets their requirements. It is taught by 2 Lead Instructors for the FSPCA Preventative Controls for Human Food. By successfully completing this course, you will meet the regulation for a “qualified individual” 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. This 2-day workshop focuses on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and how this new regulation relates to a current approved GFSI benchmarked food safety schemes (FSSC 22000, SQF, BRC, IFS, GlobalGap and others). You should take this workshop as a follow-up to the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls Course. In addition, we will include a 3-hour review for the NRFSP Certified Food Safety HACCP Manager Exam. This review will compliment discussions and learnings, not only from this course, but also from the FSPCA Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls course offered earlier in the week. Successfully passing this exam and achieving the NRFSP Certified Food Safety HACCP Manager level of competence is an excellent demonstration of competency for the GFSI approved schemes, basic food safety management programs, and regulatory HACCP and FSMA requirements. There is an optional exam on the Friday following the class.
