Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the Iowa Grain Quality Initiative and the American Feed Industry Association are partnering to offer a Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance course in preventive controls and animal food safety plans Jan. 11-13, 2022, in Ames. This 20-hour course is targeted to individuals responsible for animal feed and feed ingredient safety at milling and processing facilities.
The Food Safety Modernization Act requires feed and feed ingredient facilities to implement current good manufacturing practices and to follow a written animal food safety plan developed and overseen by a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI). This course provides a working knowledge of the new requirements and designing an effective animal food safety plan.
The Preventive Controls for Animal Food course at Iowa State University is the standardized PCQI-qualification curriculum created by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance under contract with the Food and Drug Administration. Upon completion of the course attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion for Preventive Control Qualified Individual.
Registration check-in opens at noon and the program starts at 1 p.m. CST on Jan. 11. The course adjourns on Jan. 13 at 5 p.m. Pre-registration is required and must be completed before Jan. 4. Registration is $650 and includes course materials, breaks and lunches.
