Preventive Controls for Animal Food Course Offers FSMA Training for Processing Facilities

  • On August 9, 2017

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires facilities processing any type of animal food (complete feed or ingredients) to comply with new current good manufacturing practices and to implement a written animal food safety plan developed and overseen by a “preventive controls qualified individual (PCQI).”


In order to assist businesses in meeting the requirements set by the Food and Drug Administration, the Ohio AgriBusiness Association, in collaboration with the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), will offer the FSPCA Preventive Controls for Animal Food Course Sept. 26-28.


Open to all facilities impacted by FSMA, this course is the standardized training developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA). Led by Gary Huddleston and Paul Davis of AFIA, the course content will provide knowledge of the FSMA animal preventive controls rule and training for creation of an effective animal food safety plan.


Registration for the PCQI training is $700 per participant, with a limit of 60 participants. The event will be held at Der Dutchman Restaurant in Plain City, Ohio. For complete event details or to register, visit Oaba or contact Janice Welsheimer at 614-326¬7520. The registration deadline is Sept. 6.
