FDA’s Preventive Controls: Moving to HACCP and Beyond

FDA proposes to require every registered facility to include a preventive control program that includes each of the following:

  • A hazard analysis that identifies foreseeable hazards for each type of food manufactured, processed, packed or held at the facility.
  • Preventive controls to significantly minimize or prevent hazards that are reasonably likely to occur.
  • Monitoring procedures to provide assurance that preventive controls are consistently performed.
  • Corrective actions that would be used if preventive controls are not properly implemented.
  • Verification activities to ensure that preventive controls are consistently implemented and are effective.
  • Record-keeping systems to keep a written food safety plan regarding all of the above elements.
