FDA’s New Food Safety Regulations, Part One: Understanding “Preventive Controls for Human/Animal Food”

Most manufacturers required to register with the FDA as a food facility must now create a specific written food safety plan.

Major steps in the plan include conducting a hazard analysis and designing preventive controls. To allow flexibility for a manufacturer to design a safety plan which meets the unique needs of both its food product and facility, the rule is left intentionally vague — in fact, the FDA has declined to provide a sample plan.

During this presentation you will learn:

  • The FDA’s “Seven Pillars” and the schedule for their implementation
  • What your food safety plan must include
  • Who is a preventative controls qualified individual

Depending on the size of your business, you may have less than a year left to comply with these rules. The smallest businesses (less than $1 million in sales annually) and those subject to the pasteurized milk ordinance have three years from the release of the regulations. Businesses with fewer than 500 full-time employees have two years; anyone larger has only one.
