cGMP Readiness

Self-Paced Online Course

Online Course Information:

Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) Regulations are the processes that ensures the quality of a product by establishing manufacturing procedures, ensuring that food is safe and has been prepared, packed, and stored under hygienic conditions. They describe the methods, equipment, facilities, and controls for producing processed food. These had major updates with FSMA in 2015, including section 110 being recently archived and now replaced with section 117 in the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations).

  • Food manufacturers must comply with cGMP’s through new regulations to be compliant with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), they are now more extensive and provide a holistic approach.

  • cGMPs are critical, not only to FSMA, but to every food safety and quality certification. They are audited by third-party food safety auditors at all levels of certifications in the food and beverage industry. They are also considered prerequisites under the new pre-prerequisite program under the FSMA rule- “Preventive Controls Rule for Human Food.

Course Learning Outcomes: The participants will be able to apply and help support the implementation of the revised current good manufacturing practices requirements (cGMPs), according to the final rule for “Preventive controls for human food”, released on September 17, 2015.
