Preventive Controls for Animal Food Manufacturing

Preventive Controls for Animal Food Manufacturing


FSMA, which became final in September 2015, requires food facilities to have a food safety plan in place that includes an analysis of hazards and risk-based preventive controls to minimize or prevent the identified hazards.

Purpose of Course

This course developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by the FDA and is designed to meet the requirements for training under Title 21 CFR Part 507.53.  Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual” for Animal Food.  Under the Preventive Controls for Animal Food regulation, the responsibilities of the qualified individual include to perform or oversee:

  • Preparation of the Food Safety Plan
  • Validation of Preventive Controls
  • Records Review
  • Reanalysis of the Food Safety Plan

The purpose of this workshop is to provide FDA approved training for animal food companies.  The Food Processing Center offers a 2 day workshop to assist companies in understanding and complying with the Preventive Controls for Animal Food regulations. 

Who Should Attend

Employees of FDA regulated animal food manufacturers included but not limited to:

Owners, Production Supervisors, Quality Assurance Managers, and other members of the food safety team.

FDA State Health Inspectors and Compliance Officers

Qualified Facilities are exempt from 21 CFR part 507 subparts C and E (21 CFR 507.7(d)) and are: 
• Very small businesses (including any subsidiaries or affiliates) averaging less than $2,500,000 (adjusted for inflation) -- in both sales of animal food plus the market value of animal food that is manufactured, processed, packed, or held without sale (e.g. held for a fee or supplied to a farm without sale), per year during the 3-year period preceding the current calendar year.


A facility to which BOTH of the following apply:
• During the 3-year period preceding the applicable calendar year, the average annual monetary value of the food manufactured, processed, packed, or held at the facility that was sold directly to consumers, retailers, or restaurants (within the same state or Indian reservation or within 275 miles of the facility) was less than the monetary value of food sold by the facility (including sales by any subsidiary or affiliate) to all other purchasers; and
• The average annual monetary value of all food sold during the 3-year period preceding the applicable calendar year was less than $500,000.

Food Safety in the Heartland
The “Food Safety in the Heartland” partnership, which includes Missouri Enterprise, MAMTC and the Nebraska Manufacturing Extension Partnership, is an initiative of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership National Network that includes MEP centers in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.  The three centers worked together to develop a collaboration to better serve the region’s food producers, especially small and medium-sized businesses.  The partnership’s objective is to help food manufacturers navigate complex food safety requirements. Thanks to the federal grant making this possible, we are able to affordably offer these services to the food manufacturing community.
