Federal Regulations

The GMP regulations in the 21 CFR 108, 113, and 114 became effective May 15, 1979.  These regulations are designed to prevent public health problems in low-acid and acidified low-acid canned foods.  The school provides the practical application of the principles set forth by these regulations.  Low-acid canned animal foods are also regulated by the FDA with similar regulations and training requirements in the 21 CFR 507 and 508.

Similar regulations, in the 9 CFR 318.300 and 381.300 for thermally processed meat and poultry products, were implemented by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on June 19, 1987.  FSIS requirements for training supervisors of thermal processing and container closure operations became effective on December 19, 1988.

This school satisfies the training requirements specified in both the FDA and USDA regulations.
