Benefits and Learning Objectives

This set of eight 15-minute, self-paced online courses will cover the general requirements (manufacturing, processing, packing, and holding operations), Raw Materials and other Ingredients, and the Manufacturing operations. Courses will use real-life examples to help participants understand how to implement and enforce CGMP requirements in a food processing facility. 

Following Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) helps to ensure the safety of food.  In September 2015, FDA modernized the CGMPs and established them in new Part 117 (21 CFR Part 117), along with new requirements for hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls which where were issued as part of the implementation of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).  cGMP regulations generally address matters including appropriate personal hygienic practices, design and construction of a food plant and maintenance of plant grounds, plant equipment, sanitary operations, facility sanitation, and production and process controls during the production of food.

Individuals who complete this course can do the following:

  • Apply Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) from 21CFR requirements in a food processing facility 
  • Explain and justify the use of cGMP requirements
  • Identify areas within the food production plant where procedures are involved with the cGMP regulation
