FSMA Overview & Preventive Controls 2/9/23 (1 – day): VIRTUAL

February 9, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


This custom course has been developed based on an overwhelming demand for a one-day version of the two and a half-day FDA accredited PCQI Course. In fact, this unique course is facilitated by certified Lead Instructors trained by FSPCA, Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance. This course will provide attendees with the needed information to understand the expectations of the new FSMA Law, including all seven rulings. Participants will also understand the role of the PCQI in the development of a Food Safety Plan, along with its required components. It is the ideal course to understand the impact of FSMA on your organization. Additionally, it will provide a roadmap to ensure a successful FDA inspection.

This course will also focus on how COVID-19 affects food safety, and what measures your company should take to protect employee health and safety. We’ve also included back-to-work strategies (food safety focus) based on the CDC and FDA guidelines.
