As companies work to comply with the mandates of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Kansas State University’s Department of Grain Science and IGP Institute is partnering with baking industry organization AIB International to offer a three-day workshop on FSMA compliance for grain millers this November.

Held from Nov. 7-9 in Manhattan, KS, the course, “FSPCA Preventative Controls for Human Food + HAACP Integration for FSMA Compliance for Millers,” is intended for plant managers, QA managers, food safety coordinators, and other workers at grain mill operations that produce goods for human consumption.

“Our clients, like most of the food industry, face the challenge of providing FDA-approved training for their personnel charged with developing and executing their preventative controls plan,” Gary Burgess, general manager of food safety sciences at AIB, said in a statement. “AIB International is proud to partner with the IGP to provide an engaging learning experience that meets this critical industry demand for food safety team leaders in FDA-regulated grain mills.”

Instructors will provide lessons on the FDA’s Preventative Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) requirement under FSMA, applications of risk-based preventive controls, and ways to improve and modify HACCP plans. Attendees will also take part in a tour of the IGP grain mill facility.

Those who complete the course will receive a certificate issued by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) documenting completion of FDA-recognized PCQI training.
