Support for companies exporting to the USA
The USA has its own regulations that a company will need to comply with when exporting to this market; we offer three courses to support companies:
USA Food and Drink Labelling
Food labelling regulations in the USA are very different and far more prescriptive that those in the EU. The course provides an in–depth view of those labelling requirements and helps delegates understand how to translate their EU label into a US label.
Better Process Control School (BPCS)
If you are exporting canned or aseptically packaged foods to the USA, the FDA regulations require that each processor of low–acid or acidified canned foods (including aseptic) operate with a certified supervisor on site at all times during production of products for export. The BPCS course provides information and support to help companies meet the requirements in US federal regulations. We have been approved by GMA SEF and the FDA to deliver the BPCS programme both as a scheduled course and in–house to companies.
FSPCA preventive controls for human food
US regulation requires that certain activities must be performed/overseen by a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI). Each site must have a PCQI. This course, developed by Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) is the “standardized curriculum” recognised by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); successfully completing this course meets the requirements to become a PCQI. The course will be run both as a scheduled course and in–house for individual companies.
